Clinical Training​

Nutritional Sciences Program

Students graduating with a BS in Nutritional Sciences from the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Balamand have the opportunity to develop their skills through applied practice in hospital and community settings. This is primarily through the “Dietetic Internship” at Saint George Hospital University Medical Center. The dietetic interns, throughout their rotations at the Dietetics Department, develop skills based on a structured program of well-designed rotations in nutrition therapy, foodservice management and community settings. The Program is divided as: 11 weeks food service management, 22 weeks clinical nutrition, and 3 weeks community health clinic and community project. Among these community sites, students are trained at Caritas, Dialeb, and International Orthodox Christian Charities, (IOCC), etc. By the end of the community rotation, the interns will have practiced the following:
  • Conduct screening and assessment of the nutritional status of an identified community in order to assess nutritional status and needs.
  • Plan and implement nutritional education for people of diverse cultures across the lifespan
  • Demonstrate effective communication skills with people of diverse cultures across the lifespan
  • Conduct community based health promotion/disease prevention programs
