Student performance monitoring, student retention, and supervised practice documentation
  • Grades are reviewed at the conclusion of every semester to ensure that student is able to continue in the program. Students must demonstrate a “C” (73 or higher) or better mastery in Dietetics coursework during the program’s two academic years and externship. The student will be counseled out if requirements are not met. 
  • Meet a minimum of ‘beginner or competent’ in all clinical, community/counseling, food service, and research rotations during the final spring semester and Externship.  It is expected that the student will be competent in most areas as he/she progresses through supervised practice.  In the last semester the student must be evaluated as comptetent for entry level practice in each area of practice.  Competent is defined as: demonstrates sound knowledge and effective use of entry level skills; seeks assistance after investigating potential solutions.
  • The student must abide by all requirements of the practice site and track hours to meet requirements.
