Free Nutrition Consultation Academic Event

Free Personalized Nutrition Assessment

Jasmine is a doctoral student pursuing a degree in Clinical Nutrition (DCN) at the Maryland University of Integrative Health, a regionally accredited school by MSCHE.

As part of the final residency courses, DCN students will complete a research project and a clinical component. 

 

Over the course of two trimesters, the DCN student must complete a total of 58 clinical visits under the supervision of a licensed dietitian/nutritionist (LDN). As a requirement to satisfy the clinical component of the residency courses, 14 of these visits need to be new-clients, with one new-client visit and a minimum of three follow-up visits.

In the state of Florida "a person pursuing a course of study leading to a degree in dietetics and nutrition from a program or school accredited pursuant to s.468.509(2), is exempt from practice restrictions if the activities and services constitute a part of a supervised course of study, and if the person is designated by a title that clearly indicates the person's status as a student or trainee."

To participate, the following are required by the institution:

  • You must be assessed by the student, while the student is under the supervision of a licensed practitioner.

  • You must sign consent forms, to avoid breech of HIPAA.

  • You must attend 4 visits.

  • You must fill out required clinical paperwork.

All additional costs that are incurred during the visits, such as labs, are the applicants' responsibility. 

 

 

The student may choose which areas of study align with their career interests. The student may also elect to use clinical visits for case reports to be used as a final research project. 

Topics of interest will align directly with nutrition scope of practice only. No counseling outside of the scope of nutrition practice will be offered, and if needed, will be referred to the appropriate licensed practitioner:

SPIRIT

  • Spiritual Nutrition
