The Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) offers industry recognised training in nutritional and environmental medicine practice for GPs and other healthcare professionals. Alongside our individual learning modules we also offer a more formal education pathway providing practitioners with an option to undertake structured training to gain ACNEM Certification and Fellowship.
These post-graduate level courses cover key nutritional, environmental and biochemical factors that influence health and wellbeing and are specifically designed to meet the needs of medical doctors and other healthcare professionals who would like to integrate nutritional and environmental principles into daily practice.
The Certification level of training is designed to extend employment-related skills and knowledge in a broader range of health topics. Our courses offer practical tools to aid integration into daily practice confidently and safely. Each level of Certification involves the completion of four modules.
Our Foundations Course (Primary Modules) are the entry point and these are the two core units of Certification Level One. These compulsory modules provide a foundational level of knowledge, covering human nutrition, nutritional biochemistry and nutritional medicine. The Foundations Course (Primary Modules) contains around 24 hours of content and can be completed either by attending our face-to-face training, online or a combination of both.
Each module within the Certification has a set of requirements and assessments that must be completed. These include prescribed readings, video content, writing a short self-reflective piece and a short online quiz. Each level of Certification has additional assessment requirements.
If you have attended ACNEM training in the past you may be eligible for recognised prior learning.
