NUTR71-701: Professional Placement Internship - Individual Case Management B


The nutrition and dietetics professional placement internship (PPI) program is distributed across five subjects that collectively meet the professional placement accreditation requirements of the Dietitians Association of Australia. The PPI provides a minimum of 24 weeks professional practice in the fields of Individual Case Management (2 x PPIs), Food Service Management (1 x PPI), Community and Public Health Nutrition (1 x PPI) and an elective setting (1 x PPI). In this PPI, students continue to perform Individual Case Management (ICM) in settings such as private hospitals for a minimum 5-week, full-time internship. This is performed under the supervision of Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) who are affiliated with and supported by Bond University. On completion of this PPI, students’ attainment of ICM competency is assessed by the Practice Supervisor in conjunction with the Internship Coordinator at Bond University. Final assessment of ICM competency to determine fitness to practice and eligibility to graduate from the Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice (MNDP) program will occur in the final year of the MNDP program.
