NBPNS certifies physicians who can demonstrate expertise in nutrition through documented training or self-learning. The Board is a collaboration of eight major nutrition professional societies and our diplomats include many prominent leaders in the field.
NBPNS certification is the benchmark for assuring mastery of knowledge and clinical acumen among physicians practicing medical nutrition. Candidates take our exam to certify that they are truly specialists and experts in nutrition. The credential establishes trust with patients and colleagues. It adds credibility when speaking publicly about nutrition management and assists organizations to assess the competence of physicians identifying themselves as experts in nutrition.
