Abstract

Metabolic University is an interactive, didactic program designed to provide training to dietitians and other medical professionals working in the field of inborn errors of metabolism. The training methods developed and employed by Metabolic University were shown to be effective as evidenced by a statistically significant increase of 25% in correct answers from a pretest compared with a posttest of knowledge related to the pathophysiology and nutrition management of inborn errors of metabolism. Participant feedback on faculty presentations and course content was positive. Qualitative and quantitative assessment measures of Metabolic University demonstrate that the program was effective and contributed to the knowledge base among medical professionals who manage patients with inborn errors of metabolism.
