Clinical nutritionists integrate traditional food wisdom and current scientific evidence to motivate individuals and communities to eat well and live healthier lives.

The Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine) is supported by a strong underpinning of biological and social sciences subjects. Your studies broaden throughout the degree to include nutritional biochemistry, weight management, clinical nutrition, dietary planning, sports nutrition, nutritional physiology research and public health nutrition. These theories and concepts are put into practice through developing clinical skills and clinical experience in Endeavour's Wellness Clinics.

Graduate Nutritionists may choose to enter clinical practice, either in private practice or in an integrative or other healthcare settings. Nutritionists are also entering industry based roles in areas such as product development, education, corporate health and nutraceutical sales and marketing.

This degree does not meet the professional accreditation requirements of the Dietitian's Association of Australia (DAA) for graduates to practice as an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD).

"Endeavour has exceeded my expectations in its course content and delivery. The tutorials and support and forums are so valuable, I’ve found if you have a question, reach out. It will always get answered."
