calculate and/or define diets for health conditions calculate enteral and parenteral nutrition formulations translate nutrition needs into food choices and menus counsel individuals on nutrition

Learning Experiences 1. Students will independently complete assignments covering varying aspects of the disorders under discussion. 2. Study Guides are provided that will help the student organize information around various disease states. Completion of the study guides is optional for Nutrition 642 but will be required for the MPH students during Nutrition 710. 3. In the assigned groups, students will work on the case study and lead a discussion of about 20 minutes on the case. 4. Each student who plans to become a registered dietitian in the near future would benefit from developing a Pocket Brain/Cheat Book to be used during supervised practice experiences. This is a collection of material you feel will help you get through your day. Throughout the semester suggestions will be made about what to put in your pocket brain but it is really up to the individual. Pocket brains can be used during the completion of the open book portions of exams in this class. Grading Evaluation of student performance in this course will be based on the following: Learning experiences 30% Exams (3) 70% Exams in this class are both closed book and open book. The open book exams will be practical work similar to homework assignments. Any reference that you have can be used. Grading Scale: Undergraduates: 97-100 93-96 90-92 87-89 83-86 80-82 77-79 73-76 70-72 Below 70 Below 60 Graduates: 748-805(>93%) 603-747 (75-92%) 563-602 (70-74%) <563 (Below 70%)

Case Studies: There is a lot of material covered in the case studies so I will work with each group to identify which questions in the case study to focus on. Some of it will be didactic and some of it will be practical hands on. Please have your Case Study to me 1-2 days prior to your presentation so I can review it and make changes if necessary. Please let me know your thoughts and concerns as the semester goes on and don't wait until the course is finished.
