This is a full semester of research equivalent to 25% of the load of the MND degree and qualifies students for PhD studies. Each student conducts a research project under the supervision of an academic or dietitian experienced in research. The projects encompass clinical, health promotion, public health, food service management and nutrition science areas relevant to dietetic practice. Research projects can include cross-sectional surveys, nutritional epidemiology or clinical trials, qualitative research, systematic literature reviews, or laboratory-based projects and are conducted within the University or within the facilities of the approved external supervisor. Students will gain skills in development of a research protocol; conference abstract and presentation; and write the final report in the form of a manuscript for publication.
