For many IMD, diet therapy is the fundamental treatment. Metabolic dietetics is a highly specialized area and dietitians should have access to training, education and research to help provide the best available practice.

One main aim of the SSIEM-DG is to provide education and training for dietitians and nutritionists caring for IMD patients.

Over the next few years, the SSIEM DG Committee in conjunction with the SSIEM Education and Training Advisory Committee (ETAC) aims to host a series of educational events providing teaching on key topics of metabolic dietetics. These courses will be taught by expert dietitians in the field and include plenary lectures, practical workshops and new research work.

All the events organized by the SSIEM-DG Academy will be independent from Industries.



The course is aimed primarily at dietitians and nutritionists who are new to IMD and metabolic dietetics and want to learn more about practical dietetic management and monitoring of UCD. Doctors with no dietitians in their team, who are providing dietetic management, can be considered for the application.



  1. To begin or be able to plan dietetic management for UCD patients of different ages and clinical conditions.
  2. To understand and interpret biochemical markers and anthropometry in UCD.
  3. To learn more about specific UCD with different clinical outcomes and nutritional requirements.
  4. To learn about new and novel therapies and how they impact on nutritional status and diet therapy of UCD patients.
