Founded by two current medical students, our focus is medical education.
Through Nutritank’s university society branches “Nutritanksoc’s”, we aim to promote the need for greater nutrition and lifestyle medicine training within medical education.
Originating at Bristol Medical School, Nutritank has achieved a growing momentum across the UK, from the development of these Nutritank society branches at over 20 medical schools, to online and social media engagement and the curation of key projects on a local and national scale.
Nutritank’s think tank is a member of an inter-professional working group tasked by the General Medical Council (GMC) to ensure more nutrition education is integrated within UK undergraduate medical school curricula.
Through Nutritank’s online community hubs and toolbox it aims to further promote the message of nutrition in medical lifestyle education not only to healthcare professionals and students, but also interested members of the public. This is vital, as lifestyle medicine really does depend on the engagement and empowerment of patients.
We have some exciting things in development too. Soon we aim to provide a range of fantastic benefits for paid Nutritank members, sign up now and be the first to hear about it.
