Are you interested in learning more about inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and nutrition, and potentially developing and growing an integrated IBD-diet program at your practice or institution?

Apply to be one of 20 selected candidates for the nine-month (September 2024 -May 2025) Advanced Dietary IBD Education and Training (DIET) Executive Program developed by Cedars-Sinai and endorsed by the AGA Institute. Participants can earn more than 50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and ABIM and ABP MOC Points.

All GI physicians, advanced practice providers and registered dietitians with a demonstrated clinical interest and expertise in IBD are encouraged to apply. View eligibility and criteria for selection.

The application deadline is March 15, 2024, at 11:50 p.m. PST.

The program will include two 2-day in-person symposia at the beginning and end of the nine-month program (Sept. 19–20, 2024, and May 29–30, 2025) to be held in Los Angeles, California. In between the symposia, participants will meet bi-weekly on Thursdays for three hours (8-11 a.m. PT) for virtual didactic and case-based learning sessions, research reviews, and small group discussions.

Food at the symposia will be tailored to IBD-specific diets, to create an immersive experience for attendees. A cooking class featuring IBD therapeutic diets is included. The program will also offer mentoring for career development, and practical guidance on developing and growing an integrated IBD-diet program within various practice settings.

  • Diet, the microbiome and IBD.
  • Evidence-based diet therapies for reducing inflammation.
  • Evidence-based diet therapies for maintaining remission.
  • Diets for patients with quiescent IBD and intestinal symptoms.
