The Department of Nutrition and Dietetics at Monash University now offers a range of short courses suitable for dietitians, nutritionists and other health professionals such as doctors, nurses and speech pathologists who are interested in nutrition. We offer a range of online and face-to-face courses at various times throughout the year. Our courses encourage active learning and are learner-centred. You will be supported to “construct” knowledge for yourself through learning resources combined with a series of tasks to complete. For online courses, there will be weekly moderation of discussion groups with the tutor and self-assessment quizzes with example answers meaning no coursework deadlines! Upon successful completion you will receive a certificate stating the number of hours of professional education – assessed. Please note the content for our short courses do not provide credit towards Monash University units at undergraduate or postgraduate level. As such the use of self-assessment tasks is commensurate with the short course fees. In 2015 we are offering the following courses with registration fees starting from $400: Introduction to Nutritional Genomics Introduction to Paediatric Nutrition for Health Professionals Behaviour Change and Mindfulness Skills for Dietitians & Nutritionists Sport & Exercise Nutrition CPD Short Course For more information on early bird deadlines and fees please visit http://www.med.monash.edu.au/base/short-courses.html
