NUTR71-703: Professional Placement Internship - Community and Public Health Nutrition

Description

The Master of Nutrition and Dietetic 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 individual case management (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 internship subject, students perform community and public health nutrition activities, including a project, in settings such as schools, workplaces, and community organisations for a minimum 5-week, full-time internship. This is performed under the supervision of an Accredited Practising Dietitian who is affiliated with and supported by Bond University. On completion of this internship, students’ attainment of the relevant competency standards is assessed by a practice supervisor in conjunction with 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.
