Information for Dietetic Interns

Faculty, preceptors, and training sites recognize the challenges facing learners, especially given that you are in your final year of training. As COVID-19 is a fluid situation, the Program recognizes that public health and work safety requirements may vary from community to community, and between health organizations/training sites in a community. Dietetic interns are required to follow all requirements that are in effect at their clinical sites. This will affect your individualized practical training program directly. There may be a few surprises along the way, but we are prepared to put contingencies into place that will ensure each of you are able to achieve the dietetic competencies and are practice-ready.

Reporting of COVID symptoms or exposure

Dietetic Interns on placement have a responsibility to keep themselves, others around them, and our communities safe. In relation to the pandemic, this means reporting if they experience any SYMPTOMS of COVID-19 or if they are EXPOSED to a person with COVID-19 (presumed or confirmed) within or outside the clinical environment. If you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to someone who is presumptive or positive for COVID-19 it is important that you stay home and seek advice immediately. The below flow chart outlines the specific steps any learner should take when they experience symptoms or when an exposure has occurred.
