1. Preceptor Survey

Preceptors make it possible for students to have the educational opportunities and the guidance they need to become qualified entry-level dietetic technicians and dietitians. Preceptors help to plan the experiences that enable students to apply their knowledge and skills into real-life work settings, facilitate student learning, assess students' abilities and serve as role models. The responses to this survey are being compiled this fall and made available to dietetics programs to help the profession expand its capacity in order to meet the need for qualified practitioners.
