Department of Dietetics and Nutrition

The field of dietetics and nutrition is dynamic and continuously evolving as more research is elucidated on the relationships between food, nutrition, human health and disease. With a greater emphasis on preventive health care and improved eating habits, we are committed to supporting our communities by promoting healthier lifestyles through better nutrition across diverse populations. To meet the ever-changing demands, we foster a synergistic approach to our evidence-based research initiatives. We also maintain more than 30 community partners across South Florida. Some of the most active are with local hospital systems such as Baptist Health, Memorial and Broward Health. Others include Independent Living Systems, Flipany, Special Olympics, Broward County Public Schools and Miami Jewish Home.

Graduates from Stempel College’s award-winning Department of Dietetics & Nutrition often go on to work in health care systems, home health care, food service, private business, research and educational organizations after graduation. As vital members of medical teams in hospitals, long-term care facilities and health maintenance organizations, they provide medical nutrition therapy—using specific nutrition services to treat chronic conditions, illnesses or injuries.

The department met a significant milestone in 2017 with a 100-percent passing rate on the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) exam for students in the MS Didactic Program. The national passing average was 80 percent.
