NUTR71-701: Professional Placement Internship - Medical Nutrition Therapy 2

Description

The Master of Nutrition and Dietetics Practice program professional placement internships are distributed across five subjects that collectively meet the professional placement accreditation requirements of Dietitians Australia. The internship program provides a minimum of 24 weeks of professional practice in the fields of medical nutrition therapy (1 x 5 weeks and 1 x 6 weeks), food service management (5 weeks), and community and public health nutrition (6 weeks). Students also complete an internship in an international setting (2 weeks) and 20 weeks of research internship in the final two semesters of the program. In this second internship subject, students continue to perform medical nutrition therapy in a range of clinical settings, such as private and public hospitals, under the supervision of Accredited Practising Dietitians who are supported by Bond University. These dietitians include Practice Supervisors and a Clinical Educator. Students complete a six-week full-time internship. Upon completion of this internship, students’ progress and attainment of medical nutrition therapy competency is assessed by the Clinical Educator in conjunction with the Practice Supervisors and the Subject Coordinator at Bond University.  Activities from this subject will be used to inform the final assessment of each student against all Dietitians Australia competency standards in order to determine their eligibility to graduate from the Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice program. This final assessment occurs in the final semester of the program.
