ACNEM training courses are designed for medical doctors and allied health practitioners, therefore a background in the study of anatomy and physiology is assumed. We recommend commencing with the Foundations of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine before enrolling in any of the specialised modules, however this is not compulsory.

Note: If you are not a doctor or AHP, but feel that you would still benefit by participating in our training, we encourage you to write to us at [email protected] , providing a brief outline of your professional background and training, and any other information you think is relevant, so we can take into account your individual considerations.

The ACNEM Foundation and other learning modules cover the principles and application of nutritional and environmental medicine, including clear and concise information on nutritional requirements in various disease states, as well as much nutritional physiology invaluable in all therapies.

ACNEM offers postgraduate courses only. We suggest that if you haven’t studied nutrition before and you are not a registered health professional already, you enroll in a tertiary course in nutrition or naturopathy and then do the ACNEM postgraduate training to learn more about nutritional medicine.

All of the College’s training is soundly based on available evidence from the scientific medical literature, as well as on the clinical experience of the lecturers and the Faculty members.

Almost all diseases and disease states have a nutritional component and are therefore amenable in part at least to this approach.

The College trains medical and health practitioners in the use of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine. However, many of our practitioners are trained in a range of other modalities, taught by other colleges; e.g. acupuncture, herbal medicine, etc.

ACNEM practitioners use a large range of remedies, suited to the patient and the symptoms they are treating.

ACNEM hopes that everyone who registers for a training module (either online or a face-to-face) will be able to attend; however, we know that extenuating circumstances do occur.
