Diet and lifestyle modifications have been shown to be the primary treatment approach for women with PCOS. Despite this importance, there is a lack of information being presented in dietetic curriculums about the condition. Women with PCOS may seek out help from a registered dietitian only to become more frustrated if he or she doesn’t seem to really know PCOS.
Here are some examples of what I hear from patients who have seen a dietitian before coming to work with me:
“I saw a dietitian once but I don’t feel she gave me any more information than I already knew.”
“The dietitian didn’t know anything about the supplements I was interested in taking to help my PCOS.”
“My dietitian put me on a standard diabetic diet.”
If you are seeing more and more patients with PCOS (and hopefully you are since it’s the most common endocrine disorder in women of childbearing ages), this course can help you feel more confident and proficient in helping your patients take control over their PCOS and feel better.

How is this course different than PCOS: The Dietiltian's Guide?
Both the course and PCOS: The Dietitian’s Guide covers PCOS throughout the different stages of the lifecycle and is evidence-based. While not that much has changed since the publication of the book (in 2013), the course has updated references and a more expansive (2 hours worth) section on supplements. The course also contains handouts to use in practice (this can also be purchased separately on the PCOS Nutrition Center website), as well as different case studies, and is presented in a lecture/online format. You will have lifetime access to the course and course updates, along with access to a private facebook group where I answer questions live, that is only available to registrants from the course.
How many continuing education credits will I receive?
15 CPE’s have been approved by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
How do I receive my certificate for continuing education credits?

Absolutely! All handouts can be downloaded for you to add your own logo and company information.
