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

Description

The nutrition and dietetics professional placement internship program is distributed across five subjects that collectively meet the professional placement accreditation requirements of the Dietitians Association of Australia (DAA). The internship program provides a minimum of 24 weeks professional practice in the fields of individual case management (2 x 5 weeks), food service management (5 weeks), and community and public health nutrition (5 weeks).  Students also complete internships in an international (2 weeks) and an elective setting (2 weeks). 

 

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 (APD) 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 DAA 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.
