Study a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine) to understand how food can be used to heal and revitalise.
Clinical nutritionists approach disease prevention and management through a multidimensional lens. Nutrient adequacy, food quality, dietary behaviours and lifestyle are assessed in order to develop individualised Nutrition Care Plans. Clinical nutritionists integrate traditional food wisdom and current evidence to motivate individuals and communities to eat well and live healthier lives.
Students’ nutritional studies are supported by a strong underpinning of biological and social sciences subjects. Nutrition studies broaden during the degree to include nutritional biochemistry, weight management, clinical nutrition, dietary planning, sports nutrition, nutritional physiology research and public health nutrition. These theories and concepts are put into practice through developing clinical skills and clinical experience in Endeavour’s Wellnation Clinics.
Graduate Nutritionists may choose to enter clinical practice, either in private practice or in an integrative or other healthcare settings. Nutritionists are also entering industry based roles in areas such as product development, education, corporate health and nutraceutical sales and marketing.
