We have approximately 300 preceptors across the province of BC who supervise and evaluate students in their practice education placements. Preceptors are practicing dietitians, or other professionals, who work in nutrition care, population and public health, management, and research roles. Our preceptors provide student experiences in diverse settings, such as hospitals and health care centres; residential care facilities; food service companies; government organizations; private practice; and community organizations.

This area of the UBC Dietetics Program Website is designed to support preceptors. Use the menu on the left hand side for quick navigation between topics.

Meet Our Preceptors

Being a preceptor is a chance to involve students in the complete food service experience to make it the best learning opportunity possible.

Denise Russell

"Often times students think there is only one right way to do something, but that is not the case. One dietitian may do things one way, while another may have a different rationale."

Talise Grossman

“I really enjoy sharing not only the day-to-day nuances but also advice that will help with career growth and other aspects of life, and what the world is like when you’re not a student anymore.”

Megan Lacoste

“It’s always been a priority for me to be a preceptor. I want to give students the opportunity to shine.”

Carrie Rae

“I love to see students grow, “ she said. “And I love to see preceptors take on a challenge beyond their clinical work and flourish.”
