About student-led consultations

Student led consultations are carried out by Massey University 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 undertake 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. In addition, they 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.

What to expect

Initial consultation

The initial consultation gives you the chance to tell your story. We will discuss your medical history, weight history, lifestyle, eating patterns and behaviours. You will be emailed a pre-consultation questionnaire to complete prior to your first visit and will be asked to keep a three-day food and mood diary.

We take into account your current weight, lifestyle and personal goals to create a bespoke lifestyle plan that is realistic and achievable. Supporting information such as recipes and hand-outs will be provided.

Follow-up sessions

Follow-up sessions allow for plan modification and help keep you on track. Each session gives us the chance to concentrate on a particular aspect of your diet and lifestyle.
