“ The DDEPT program not only allowed me to explore my ambitions of becoming a Dietitian, but fully understand my aspirations in the field. While in the program, I completed one of my placements at Humber River Hospital. I loved it because it didn’t feel like work, it felt like I was following my passion. ”

“ The Diploma in Dietetic Education and Practical Training Program (DDEPT) provided me with an opportunity to be trained professionally in a wide variety of healthcare settings. The placement plan was tailored to meet my professional interest and career goals. ”

“ All my placements were extremely different from one another. I had the chance to work in community health centres, hospitals, long term care homes, grocery stores, and family health teams, in areas including bariatrics, diabetes, management, surgery, GI conditions, NICU and pediatrics, retail dietetics, and food skill development. ”
