Students participate in shaping their practicum schedule through regular meetings with their Dietetic Education Coordinator, who ensures the placement schedule will meet dietetic competencies (which are required for professional registration). Through the practical training placements, students will develop competencies in the following areas:
- Nutrition Care
- Population & Public Health
- Professional Practice
- Communication & Collaboration
Students in this program experience rich and dynamic practicum placements in settings such as community health centres, family health teams, food industry, hospitals, long-term care homes and public health units.
