Practice-Based Student Research

In year 5 of the program, dietetics students undertake practice-based research projects as part of the Research Module of their practice education. Research projects are completed within BC health authorities and are supervised by practicing dietitians.

The module is overseen by the Research Advisory Committee, which is made up of UBC Dietetics program staff and practicing dietitians.

Research Exchange

The Research Module culminates in an annual research event called the Research Exchange, where students present some of their key findings to an audience of their peers, preceptors, practicing dietitians, as well as UBC faculty and staff.
