Dietitians of Canada Post-degree Practicums

Students who wish to become professional dietitians must meet all the requirements mandated by the Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice (PDEP) and complete either an accredited integrated or graduate dietetic practicum in addition to their university program. Acadia University's Bachelor of Science in Nutrition (Dietetics option) is an accredited program recognized by the Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice (PDEP) and prepares students for eligibility for registration with a provincial dietetics regulatory body. It is an excellent preparation for postgraduate study in the health professions and education. Successful completion of a national registration examination is also a requirement.

Please consult the Dietitians of Canada website for more information on dietetic practicums.

Application for post-degree practicum programs through the Dietitians of Canada (DC) annual program match process is done in January of the fourth year of study. It is a competitive process with students from across Canada competing. Students may apply to three different locations.

Please contact Prof. Foote if you have any questions regarding dietetic practicums.
