MMI is proud to offer an E-Learning program for veterinary students at our partner schools featuring many of our core nutritional topics for healthy pets. The asynchronous modules were created and reviewed by multiple DACVNs and follow instructional design principles. Each module lesson aligns to specific learning objectives and includes formative learning assessments. Training is FERPA compliant and follows ADA and UDL accessibility standards. Downloadable learning guides and study tips are also included. MMI Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist® faculty are available to lead discussion components, facilitate an online laboratory, and give live lectures, to ensure that our online courses include direct interaction with faculty.

If you are a veterinary school faculty member or administrator who would like to discuss a collaboration with us for pet nutrition education for your students, please contact us.

Sample Lessons

Interpreting Pet Food Labels

Understanding and properly interpreting the information on a pet food label is more involved than you might think.

Nutritional Assessment

Many factors contribute to understanding an animal's nutritional needs and whether those needs are being met with a given diet.

Alternative Diets

Raw diets? Plant based only diets? Homemade? Learn how to understand the benefits and risks of each.


“I am a new course coordinator for VMED 0818 Veterinary Nutrition, which is offered to the second year students at our college, and I have been impressed with your team: Dr. Cailin Heinze, Dr. Maria Guillily, and technical support crew.  They are very efficient and professional, and I am truly thankful to MMI for sharing such talented and dedicated people with us at Tuskegee.  I am taking the online modules with students, and I find them current, relatable, and fun.  And I must say, the quiz is not easy! I look forward to working with these students in 2 years at clinical clerkship, applying the knowledge of nutrition to every case, every time.  The knowledge they gain from this course will benefit so many patients in their lives.  For that, I thank MMI.” 

--Noriko Aoi, Clinical Faculty at Tuskegee University


I really enjoy it! The questions in each module are engaging and follow along with the material well. I also find the case examples a great way to apply the knowledge from the modules. I found areas for review easily through those.

I definitely think the modules are engaging and interactive! It’s been a great way to learn so far. My favorite part has been working through the cases.
