Full time or Part time Study
Study a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine) to understand how food can be used to heal and revitalise.
Clinical nutritionists approach disease prevention and management through a multidimensional lens. Nutrient adequacy, food quality, dietary behaviours and lifestyle are assessed in order to develop individualised Nutrition Care Plans. Clinical nutritionists integrate traditional food wisdom and current evidence to motivate individuals and communities to eat well and live healthier lives.
Students' nutritional studies are supported by a strong underpinning of biological and social sciences subjects. Nutrition studies broaden during 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 Wellnation 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.

Health Science degrees are designed to train you to become a healthcare practitioner. To support learning, you'll attend practical classes where you are expected to practise interviewing techniques, examination and treatment procedures on your fellow students under the supervision of qualified instructors. This is conducted with respect for privacy, cultural and religious differences. Prospective students are advised to consider these course requirements and to gauge your own comfort level with both learning to touch others diagnostically/therapeutically and with serving as a model for your classmates in this learning environment.
Classes are taught by experts who are highly trained in their fields and who bring their own clinical experience to help provide context to therapeutic subjects. As you progress through the course you will gain significant clinical experience at Endeavour’s on campus teaching clinics under supervision, developing and honing all skills required to run a successful clinic after graduation, including patient assessment and management, patient recruitment and continuity of care, customer service and dispensary management.
Please be aware that some subjects in this course have a 100% attendance requirement, and that these classes can only be missed for a very narrow number of reasons and must then be made up in order to fulfil the attendance requirement. This applies to all Clinical Practicum subjects, as well as other clinical subjects such as pre-clinical skills and clinic observation subjects. Students are responsible for knowing the attendance requirements for all subjects and for scheduling personal events to allow for adherence to the subject outline and the College’s Attendance Policy.
While some subjects require mid-term and final exams, assessments may also comprise quizzes, essays, practical/clinical skills demonstration and tutorial participation. Students enrolled in online subjects sit their final exam at Endeavour or, if they live at a distance, under approved external supervision.
