Clinical Nutritional Science B
These course outlines are a guide only. They are provided for the information of prospective students. Although every effort is made to ensure the most up to date information is provided, timetables often change each semester due to the availability of rooms and resources. Content (including lecture/practical topics, assessment and textbooks) is also regularly reviewed to ensure relevance and effective learning.
All students must achieve competency in the 3 clinical areas of individual case management (ICM), community/public health and food service dietetics. Students undertake ICM training at one, two or more hospitals/clinical sites. Community/public health placements occur at community nutrition centres, public health units and non-government organisations. Food service placements are usually part of a hospital food service department or other institution. The semester is typically of 20-22 weeks duration and placement starts outside of standard university semester dates (usually late June/early July) to accommodate this.
