I recently arrived in Canada with 15 years of experience as a dietitian in India. I was prepared to relearn certain concepts to continue in the field, but I didn’t expect to go to university all over again. However, even though the principles of nutrition remain the same across cultures, the way you communicate and apply the knowledge is different. The Internationally Educated Dietitians Pre-registration Program provided enlightenment and enrichment, with new perspectives from the mentors’ unique bodies of expertise, relevant course materials and practical tasks, group work, active discussions, and placements. Instructors also helped with job applications. The program not only helped me fit into my profession, but helped me stand out.
