Student clinicians

Student led consultations are carried out by Massey dietetic students under the supervision of a New Zealand Registered Dietitian. All students are qualified nutritionists – they have already completed three years undergraduate study in nutrition and some have also majored in psychology or sport and exercise.

The students involved at the Nutrition and Dietetic Centre are either first-year or second-year students enrolled in the Master of Science (Nutrition and Dietetics), which is a two-year master's degree.

Our dietetic students do internships in various organisations, including District Health Boards. As a result, they undergo police vetting, are reference checked and also screened in accordance with the Vulnerable Children Act 2014.

They also go through strict health screening in line with DHB policies. All the students also comply with professional conduct and confidentiality requirements in accordance with the Health Information Privacy Code 1994 and the Privacy Act 1993.
