Each internship encompasses intensive research work over a minimum of 10 weeks. Under the supervision of a PhD-qualified dietitian, this internship involves students managing and coordinating a nutrition and dietetics research project and team; analysing, documenting, and disseminating the findings of the research project; and drawing conclusions based on the outcomes of the research project to improve the evidence based practice of dietitians. Assessment of the research internship involves submission of a thesis which includes as least one systematic review and one original research manuscript in a format consistent with a peer-reviewed journal.
