Head of Department’s Foreword

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.

Greetings and welcome to Department of Nutrition’s website.

Department of Nutrition, Faculty of Medicine Hasanuddin University has come along way from its establishment in 1982 to achieve current education, training, and research accomplishments through successive and visionary leadership in years. From a humble beginning, now it houses a leading Clinical Nutrition Specialist Program in the country. The Department also houses well-qualified and experienced academics with clinical, education, and research credentials who are responsible in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate medical students , supervising residents in Clinical Nutrition Specialist Program as well as postgraduate research projects.

Department of Nutrition has always been keen to foster collaborative engagement with other departments within Faculty of Medicine in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate medical students to enhance integrative curricula, to engage national and international researchers in the field of clinical nutrition in order to fulfill its responsibility as as a center of excellence in nutrition education and research for both basic human nutrition and clinical/applied nutrition.

Hopefully this website may highlight all activities and achievements of Department of Nutrition as well as its aspiration, so that future students can find it useful as a preliminary reference to what they might encounter should they decide to join any education, training, and research program in which Department of Nutrition and its academic staffs are involved.

I thank you for coming to our website
