Course overview

Clinical nutritionists integrate traditional food wisdom and current scientific evidence to motivate individuals and communities to eat well and live healthier lives.

Clinical Nutritionists approach disease prevention and management through a multidimensional lens. Nutrient adequacy, food quality, dietary behaviours and lifestyle are assessed so that individualised Nutrition Care Plans can be developed. Scientific evidence, ethics and sound clinical reasoning guide practice to ensure that diet and supplement recommendations are efficacious and safe. Clinical Nutritionists integrate traditional food wisdom and current scientific evidence to guide and support individuals and communities to eat well and live healthier lives.

Graduate Nutritionists may choose to enter clinical practice, either in private practice or in an integrative or other healthcare setting. Nutritionists are also entering industry based roles in areas such as product development, education, corporate health and nutraceutical sales and marketing.
