Clinical Training

In line with industry standards, graduates in Nutrition must have undertaken Clinic training as part of their course.  The flexible online delivery of our courses means that you are able to complete your Clinic with a practitioner in the location of your choice.  We do not require you to attend an on-campus clinic.   

Switch on Health builds and maintains a network of practitioners around the country to facilitate your completion of clinic.  

Switch on Health does not charge a fee for your Clinic training.  Your supervisor/s may request a fee from you for the time and energy that they put into mentoring you.   

We recommend that you commence your Clinic once you have completed the first two years.  This will mean that you have sufficient knowledge to make your Clinic experience valuable, and you will be able to work more effectively with your supervisor as you begin to put theory into practice.
