In most health professions, there is a clear progression from beginning practitioner to seasoned expert. While such a progression may exist in dietetics, it is not clearly articulated. This ground-breaking reference is designed for clinical dietitians with an interest in elevating their level of practice. Advanced Medical Nutrition Therapy Practice describes a model of advanced practice in medical nutrition therapy and illustrates how dietitians can become advanced-level practitioners through education and training.
