IGNOU starts admission for paediatric nutrition courses

The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), established by an Act of Parliament in 1985, has continuously striven to build an inclusive knowledge society through inclusive education. It has tried to increase the Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) by offering high-quality teaching through the Open and Distance Learning (ODL) mode.

The Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has started admission to two online programmes in paediatric nutrition, the university said in a statement on 16th August 2012.

Government and NGO functionaries involved with community development programmes or science graduates with an interest in healthcare, the pharmaceutical industry or biochemistry may also apply.

The 'Post Graduate Certificate in Paediatric Nutrition (PGCPN)' and 'Post Graduate Diploma in Paediatric Nutrition (PGDPN)' are for individuals seeking expertise in paediatric nutrition. The applicants could be healthcare practitioners, dieticians, diet counsellors or health administrators.

According to IGNOU, the programme would help capacity building of healthcare practitioners, nutritionists and other stakeholders involved in the care of infants, children and adolescents.

"The programmes have been designed on a modular approach. The modules prepared as part of this exercise integrate education and training and focus on upgrading knowledge," said the statement.

The duration of the post graduate certificate course is six months while that of the post graduate diploma programme is a year.

The last date to apply is Sep 10, 2012.
