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


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 perform Community and Public Health Nutrition (C&PHN) in settings such as community health centres for a minimum 4-week, full-time internship. This is performed under the supervision of an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) who is affiliated with and supported by Bond University. On completion of this PPI, students’ attainment of C&PHN competency is assessed by the Practice Supervisor in conjunction with both the C&PHN Lead and the Internship Coordinator at Bond University. Final assessment of C&PHN 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.
