Clinical Dietetics, M.S.

Clinical dietetics uses food as a medical intervention. Registered dietitians/nutritionists perform nutritional assessments and develop individualized treatment plans using food as the therapy modality.

The program has two tracks. Track A is for students desiring a master's degree and the supervised practice necessary to become eligible for the national examination for registered dietitians. This track is accredited by The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND®). Track B is especially for credentialed Registered Dietitians (RDs) or Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) who desire a masters degree.

A Master of Science in Clinical Dietetics from Grand Valley State University provides the opportunity for students to build on their broad knowledge and attain deeper comprehension and skill in practice. Specialized knowledge allows RDNs to be more competitive in practice now and in the future. This is a benefit not only to the practitioner, but also for his/her patients and clients.
