Faculty of Medicine
Department of Nutritional Sciences
The Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Toronto is one of only a few in North America situated in a Faculty of Medicine. Although the department is centered in the Basic Sciences sector of the Faculty, its activities include not only basic science but also clinical and community aspects of nutrition. These activities that range from ‘bench to bedside to populations’ make it a model of integration within the whole of the health sciences complex at the University of Toronto, enabling a full exploration of the relationships between nutrition and human health to influence both clinical practice and public health policy.
