DI ExpectationsThe supervised practice experience with Cuisine365 Nutrition & Wellness is designed to build skills and entry-level competency upon the intern’s existing foundation of didactic knowledge. Throughout the supervised practice rotation, the goal is to gradually increase the intern’s level of: Responsibility - Proficiency - Independence - Competence While at first the intern may simply observe, the intern will take on increasing portions of the preceptor’s role until the intern is able to assume all entry-level aspects of the preceptor’s job independently. Throughout the rotation, the intern should gradually progress from moderate supervised practice to increasing independence and minimal supervision. Responsibilities and challenges should progress from basic to complex, and the work load and speed expectations should increase similarly.
DI Director Required InformationIn order for Cuisine365 Nutrition & Wellness to successfully complete the supervised practice with the DI student, the Internship Director is to provide us with detailed information of the expectations within the rotation:
Competencies and Intern Evaluation Both preceptors and interns will be provided with Rotation Descriptions, Rotation Assignment Checklists, and Evaluation Forms for each rotation prior to the start of the rotation. This can be worked out between the Preceptor (RD) and the Internship Director prior to the student's supervised practice. 1. The Rotation Description details the following: Planned Experiences – Planned experiences or activities that should satisfy the desired competency or learning outcome Competency/Outcome – Competencies or learning outcomes that are associated with the selected planned experience Assessment Method – The method and evaluator for the selected competency 2. A Rotation Assignment Checklist for each assignment that interns are required to complete as a learning experience and/or means of assessing competencies/learning outcomes. 3. Upon completion of the supervised practice competencies, the RD will have access to the specific Evaluation Form for the assignment. Preceptors will use the rubric to evaluate the intern’s work and rate their competency.
