Job Description for Clinical Dietitian

Clinical dietitians are responsible for all aspects of patient diet and nutrition therapy in a clinical setting. This involves first assessing patient status to determine nutritional and dietary needs. They then identify medical goals and develop a nutritional plan that helps patients improve their health. Once a plan has been implemented, clinical dietitians monitor patients and make adjustments to their dietary recommendations as needed. They work with both patients and their families to teach healthy eating habits, encourage program adherence, and develop customized diets for cultural, religious, and/or income-restricted individuals. At the conclusion of their assistance, clinical dietitians provide exit counseling or long-term planning and advice to ensure healthy living for the patient once they are no longer under the dietitian’s care.
