Programs at the Faculty of Health Sciences and Medicine are designed in close consultation with prominent industry professional boards to ensure the integrity and contemporary relevance of the degree.

Industry advisory boards

The External Advisory Committee (EAC) provides ongoing advice to the Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice (MNDP) program at Bond University.

The primary role of the EAC is to help ensure the Program is compliant with accreditation standards as required by the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA). With the Program’s mission to produce dietitians with a difference who make a difference, the EAC provides strategic, independent advice for how the Program can deliver on that goal.

EAC members have been specifically selected as they are highly-regarded in their field, represent a diverse range of dietetic practice settings and make valuable contributions to the operation of the Program. 

The EAC meets every six months, either in person or via teleconference, and will ensure the Program continues to remain relevant to dietetic practice.
