The Graduate Program in Science of Nutrition, Sports and Metabolism (PPG-CNEM), offers stricto sensu course at the Master’s and Doctor’s Degree. It has two focus areas and two research lines focused on the current challenges of knowledge production in the areas of Food and Nutrition, Metabolism and Physical Activity.

The courses were implemented in 2011 (Master’s degree) and 2013 (Doctor’s degree), with recommendation and recognition by CAPES. The teaching staff of the PPG-CNEM works on innovative institutional research and extension projects, in collaboration with national and international institutions, with the concern with academic excellence being one of the program’s identification signs.

The main purpose of the program is the training of masters and doctors committed to professional ethics, multidisciplinary vision, critical sense and responsibility to society and the advancement of knowledge in health. The program seeks the solid formation of human resources, highly qualified and multipliers of the exercise of teaching and research through the use of the scientific method. Also, that such professionals have intellectual independence and commitment to scientific dissemination and are able to act as critical citizens and aware of their role as healthcare professionals.

The program’s target audience is formed by professionals like nutritionists, sports scientists, physical education professionals, biologists, nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, doctors, dentists, veterinarians, as well as human and exact sciences areas professionals who can have multidisciplinary interaction with the program’s research lines.

The selection of applicants to the master’s degree and doctor’s degree courses is made by means of annual publication notice.
