Brief Job Description

The individual in this position will play an integral role in training nutrition and dietetics students enrolled in the Future Education Model Graduate Program, which bridges applied coursework in our ACEND-accredited Didactic Program in Dietetics at the undergraduate level with a new M.S. concentration in Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics and reorganized experiential learning components from the ACEND-accredited Dietetic Internship. This program uniquely integrates experiential learning in a stepwise progression from simulations to practice, emphasizes mentoring of senior-level undergraduates by graduate students in the practice setting, and will culminate in a clinical outcomes data monitoring and analysis project. Graduates of this program will be eligible to take the registration examination for dietitians.
