Canada launches a new website to assist Internationally Educated Dietitians
  • A new website has been launched to assist Internationally Educated Dietitians (IEDs) interested in exploring dietetic practice in Canada. It provides an orientation to dietetic practice and the opportunity for IEDs to self-assess their level of knowledge and skill compared to the standards required to practice dietetics in Canada. 
     
    The new Canadian Dietetic Practice Orientation and Self-Assessment Tool (OSAT) website is one of the tools that was developed as part of a larger competency assessment project.

    The website is available at: www.dietitianselfassessment.ca
       
    The Canadian Dietetic Practice Orientation and Self-Assessment Tool (OSAT) tool is free to use. After reviewing the information on the website, click on “Complete my Self-Assessment” to assess your level of knowledge and skill compared to the standards required to practice dietetics in Canada.
