Dietitian Services

Our registered dietitians (RDs) are clinical, administrative, education and research practitioners, who are members of the College of Dietitians of Ontario, a health profession regulated under Ontario law. In addition to the minimum requirements necessary to become an RD, a significant number of our dietitians have additional graduate training and have sub-specialties in adult education, applied science, or business.

  • Clinical dietitians teach dietitians in training and provide nutritional patient care services in six program areas:
  • Administrative dietitians direct our patient food and hospitality services and teach dietitians in training.
  • Educational and research dietitians co-ordinate the nutritional studies of staff RDs, dietetic interns and students in master’s programs.
  • Be careful when you see the title "nutritionist." It is not protected and therefore can be used by anyone, whether or not they have the appropriate education and training. When looking for a reliable source for nutrition information, be sure to consult an RD.
