Plantrician University

A free, evidence-based education platform that supports the therapeutic use of plant-based nutrition as the foundation of lifestyle medicine

Physicians in training receive approximately 19-25 hours of nutrition education in their entire medical school training. Our current programs and resources exist to fill this gap by educating and equipping practicing healthcare professionals – with Plantrician University, we’re getting to the root of the issue. 

Plantrician University (PlantU) ensures that every health professional will graduate with the tools to prioritize prevention. PlantU is a dynamic, online learning and community platform. It equips and empowers future physicians, nurses, health coaches, registered dietitians, public health officials, and other healthcare professionals in training, with the knowledge and tools they need to become advocates and educators for the evidence-based role of plant-based nutrition to prevent and dramatically reduce rates of chronic disease, grow health equity, and improve human and global health.

By educating healthcare professionals in training on the root cause of chronic lifestyle-related disease, we empower the next generation with the critical knowledge they need to treat their patients and help them prevent and reverse disease.  We believe that this next generation of healthcare providers has the potential to usher in a new era of healthcare founded on the principles of value-based care, plant-based nutrition and lifestyle medicine.
