    CERTIFICATION AND FELLOWSHIP

    The Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) offers industry recognised training in nutritional and environmental medicine practice for GPs and other healthcare professionals. Alongside our individual learning modules we also offer a more formal education pathway providing practitioners with an option to undertake structured training to gain ACNEM Certification and Fellowship.


    ACNEM’s revised cancer care module will explore the speciality area of integrative oncology, showcasing a variety of therapeutic tools and techniques.

    Our experienced presenters will share their working clinical knowledge of hyperbaric oxygen use and hyperthermic treatments, as well as bringing you up to date on the latest research and use of intravenous vitamin C in this field.

    The training will include sessions on how to apply ketogenic diets in clinical practice and how this can benefit your patients, as well as how all of these tools and techniques can be used with other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation.

    You will also hear about the metabolic management of cancer, immune modulating nutraceuticals and cancer pain management. Bring your tricky case questions and build your network with like-minded practitioners.


    This Active Learning Module will explore the biological, nutritional and environmental factors that influence the immune system. Our training will provide GPs and other healthcare professionals an opportunity to build on their knowledge and clinical skills.

    Our specialist presenters will bring their experience and expertise to discuss an integrative approach to the treatment of complex and chronic immune conditions. Topics will include Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, the use of intravenous vitamin C, and insights to clinical assessment of chronic immune conditions. 

    Targeted nutritional treatment strategies for the prevention and treatment of dysregulated immunity, as well dietary recommendations will be explored. 



    This module will explore the evidence-informed specialty area of cognitive health and the factors that influence it.

    Our specialist presenters will bring their clinical experience and knowledge on the application of specific diets, including ketogenic, Mediterranean and intermittent fasting and offer practical tips and tools in the integration of this into practice.

    You will learn about the tools for assessing the level of cognitive decline and how to interpret relevant pathology tests.  This training module will include an expert panel discussion of a case study as well as offering a systematic approach, helping practitioners to consolidate knowledge, build resources and work in collaboration with affiliated networks.



    The Primary Modules 1 & 2 are the entry point for ACNEM’s training.  

    These two modules provide foundational knowledge of nutritional and environmental medicine; including nutritional biochemistry and how this relates to the physiology of health and disease. These modules constitute approximately 30 contact hours.

    Enrolment provides access to online content for a three-month period for each module. All participants are required to undertake a number of activities to obtain a Certificate of Completion. These learning activities include prescribed reading, pre-disposing and reflective activities, as well as a short online quiz.  


    This module investigates the potential nutritional and environmental components of allergy, autoimmune and dermatological conditions commonly seen in general practice. Conditions covered include urticaria, anaphylaxis, eczema, rhinitis, asthma, food intolerance and inhalant allergy.


    This module will explore the physiology of cancer cells and what drives cellular replication, the genes that may be involved, functional testing to aid in treatment, nutritional deficiencies commonly implicated in cancer, optimal dietary and nutritional strategies for cancer patients and how environmental toxins may be involved. 
    Ensuring children are healthy is not only vital for an optimal childhood but can also help reduce later incidence of chronic diseases. ACNEM’s Children’s Health module covers challenging topics such as ADHD, autism, allergies, recurrent infection, chronic fatigue in children, the role of epigenetics, child and adolescent mental health, and obesity in childhood. This highly informative course also includes optimal nutrition for pregnancy, breastfeeding, birth and development for the early years of life. Experts in the field present the latest evidence and how this works in practice.
    This module on environmental health provides participants with an overview of the principles and practice of this stream of practice. Training is delivered by experienced medical doctors and other building biology experts.

    Topics covered include mould, biotoxins, CIRS (chronic inflammatory response syndrome), endocrine disrupting chemicals, heavy metal toxicity, and the case of the sensitive patient.You will learn practical, clinically relevant skills, such as protocol development for identification, testing and treatment of specific environmental exposure.
    This learning module provides a practical, evidence-based approach to nutritional medicine assessment and treatment for gastrointestinal conditions.  Topics covered include a range of GIT dysfunction and specific dietary approaches.

    The mental health training module includes clinical applications and practical tips for mental health conditions. The presentations in this training address the underlying physiological issues that may contribute to neurological, behavioural and social disorders and offer effective interventions to support brain biochemistry, mood and behaviour.


    This module discusses the underlying biochemistry of metabolic syndrome and provides practical evidence-based solutions through diet, nutrition, gut health and case history discussion to enable immediate application in clinical practice.

    A comprehensive overview of evidence-based therapies for neuroinflammatory disorders - the chronic conditions involving damage to the nervous system by the body’s own immune response. Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease and depression will be presented. This training provides insight into the role of nutritional and environmental medicine and its influence on the underlying physiological issues that contribute to neurodegeneration. Hear the growing scientific evidence behind the treatment options, pathology testing and dietary interventions.

    Presentations focus on current, evidence-based information, discussing nutritional and environmental medicine (NEM) approaches for commonly seen conditions. Our specialist practitioners offer strategies and new investigation techniques that will assist health practitioners to further understand the biochemical and physiological processes behind the symptoms of clinical and subclinical thyroid and adrenal conditions. Discussion includes availability and validity of testing, clinical signs and symptoms, and specific nutrient and dietary recommendations to assist with the development of comprehensive treatment protocols.


    This module is a comprehensive guide to women’s health from a Nutritional and Environmental Medicine perspective. Topics include all aspects of women's health from pre-conception through to peri to post-menopause. Hear the evidence for nutritional recommendations and targeted individualised supplements, to support your patients to achieve better health outcomes.
