Preceptors are a key component of dietitian training.

Conversation circles will be used to provide a mechanism by which registrants can exchange about the knowledge and skills necessary to preceptor effectively and in an evidence-based manner. Seasoned and new preceptors welcome. Dietetic interns are also encouraged to attend to enhance their understanding of the dietetic training process and provide insight.
