The practicum course is the third of three practicum course designed for full-time and part-time dietetic interns. The practicum provides 240 hours of supervised experience at two community placements; WIC & a community nutrition education setting. The field experience emphasizes the leadership role of public health and community nutritionists. Students participate in the development, implementation and evaluation phases of community-based food and nutrition programs; perform the nutrition care process for individuals, groups and populations of differing ages throughout the practicum experience; and engage in advocacy activities. Learning activities that reinforce the supervised practice are provided online via Moodle, The Sage Colleges’ learning management system.
