Practice Education home page

Practice education is the experiential learning component of healthcare provider education that occurs in health service delivery and/or simulated settings, and that helps students learn the necessary skills, attitudes and knowledge required to practice effectively in their field.

This practical application of knowledge and skills gives students the opportunity to demonstrate competence with supervised dietetic work in their field.

As part of a dietetic degree there is a period of time spent in a working dietetic environment. Traditionally, this is within a clinical hospital or community environment, but increasingly, other areas of dietetics are being used as placements for student Practice Education.
