Admissions Requirements

The only admissions considerations is if you would like to take this course alone as a practical and experiential introduction to the subject matter or take the course as part of the Diploma or Degree which includes the full online course to go much deeper into the science to gain a much better and well rounded understanding of the subject matter. If taking this course as part of the Degree you will also be required to take 12 private tutoring classes so that each module is understood at an advanced level.  

 

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for this course, this course covers all foundational information on nutritional science, cell biology, nutritional biochemistry, lifestyle medicine, culinary medicine and culinary art. We do require you to have a passion for the course material and a drive to research on the topics and complete assignments and an exam.  

 

Culminating experience (Non-thesis)

This course requires that students complete a practical based exam carried out under the supervision of the program faculty in class. Students will also present assignments throughout the two weeks.

I gained so much more from this course than I ever could have anticipated when I signed up. Darren is not only a clear expert in his field, but a wonderful, humble and entirely present teacher. No questions or opinions went unheard or unaddressed. Each module, fascinating in it's own right, was thoroughly explained and practised. I had a preconception about the modules I would like most and least after reading the course summary but this was challenged in real-life when I found the learning on nearly every topic truly engaging. My expectations were very much exceeded and I would highly recommend this course to anyone considering it.

I can’t begin to express how grateful and fortunate I am to have Darren teach us in Bali this January. I have been searching for a plant based culinary school for a while. And though I came across a few, I knew they weren’t the right ones. When I found PBA’s syllabus I just knew it was the one! And my instincts were right. It was a transformative and mind blowing 2 weeks experience where we got to learn so much more that’s beyond what a plant based diet entails. The foundations of Lifestyle Medicine is incredibly fascinating and inspiring. Darren is a treasure trove of wisdom and knowledge who truly shares from the heart. I sure will miss the daily medicinal teas and fermented drinks we have in class together and tasting the delectable foods he prepares for us, all made with love. Thank you Darren for all that you do, the encouragement and support you provide us.
