This is a great opportunity for the right person. Please note: we receive a very high volume of applicants and therefore application is available via email only - telephone applications will not be considered. While we would like to be able to help everyone, we cannot accept more than two to four students per term in order to ensure we are able to offer our full support, and therefore the positions in this program are highly competitive. Due to high demand, only a small percentage of applicants will be invited in for an interview. If you do not receive a reply to your email then it means your application has not been successful at this time.

Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional & Dietetic Medicine) 

"The internship has given me the reassurance that being a Nutritionist is what I want to do in the future and now feel as though it is a field i could be very successful in (something i did not feel entirely confident about with my previous studies/work).


In the clinic the most enjoyable part would have to be the client consultations. As I completed a 1 year internship, I graduated to Nutrition Assistant and was integrated into many of Jen's consultations and developed a relationship with many of the patients.


Not only am i gaining knowledge from Jen, and seeing patients achieve their goals, but also learning the intricacies of clinical operations."
