Previous studies have shown that malnutrition in the elderly was related to multiple factors, such as physiological factors, pathological factors, social ability and psychological factors, and has become a social problem that we could not neglect. This program provides professional knowledge of geriatric nutrition and practical studies for students by inviting the faculty members from the College of Nutrition at Taipei Medical University and increases knowledge of students in geriatric nutrition by combining courses such as aging, nutrition, food safety, and health care. There are five-program courses planned in geriatric nutrition, metabolism, food safety, and nutritional care. Professors or specialists in different nutritional fields will provide a variety of courses such as basic nutrition, nutrition and aging, molecular biology in nutrition, community nutrition, functional foods, etc. Additionally, we'll provide a chance to visit Taipei Cancer Center, community active aging center, and aboriginal tribes. Basic theory, laboratory skills, off-campus internship and meal plan for a specific population are also included. The TEEP program focuses on: (1) understanding geriatric nutrition, nutritional education and nutrition research in Taiwan, (2) learning about food science, geriatric nutrition, nutritional care, and practical skills to deal with clinical nutrition problems in Taiwan or other countries, (3) expanding international horizons of domestic students via connecting with international students, and (4) exploring Taiwan’s culture and providing professional knowledge and skills to international students.
