Corequisites

In addition to regular classroom instruction in natural nutrition, each student completes a minimum of 50 hours of mandatory corequisites, out of approximately 100 hours offered to students. The main focus of these corequisites is case study work, including follow-up case studies.

These corequisites are completed under the supervision of a qualified holistic nutrition professional, through the presentation of case studies, role-playing, group studies and lectures by guest speakers.
