Recent strides in the exploration of human and animal microbiota are reshaping the paradigm of healthcare. This evolution transcends the predictive, reactive model that was predominantly rooted in genetics, pivoting towards a holistic, forward-thinking, and precision-based approach. In this new perspective, the central role of epigenetics in health is acknowledged.
The prolonged life expectancy of our citizens has heightened concerns about age-related illnesses (as per WHO, 2021). Many chronic non-communicable diseases prevalent in today's developed societies, including metabolic syndrome, inflammatory conditions, cancer, allergies, intolerances, and atopies, are closely linked to dysbiosis within the intestinal microbiota.
In light of this, the curriculum dedicates approximately 40% of credits to applied knowledge essential for clinical intervention. This includes comprehensive training on the concepts of eubiosis and dysbiosis and their profound influence on health and disease. Moreover, it encompasses the most rigorously substantiated techniques for assessing and modulating microbiota.Read +
The wealth of available evidence underscores the critical role of a health professional with expertise in microbiota, positioning them as strategic responders to current and future socio-health demands.
In this context, our innovative program offers a tailored curriculum that addresses contemporary requirements. It integrates the latest advancements and ongoing research, enhancing daily practices and benefiting from the knowledge of a dedicated faculty and actively engaged professionals.Read Less
