How valuable would it be to have more dietitians trained in intuitive eating and Health at Every Size DURING their dietetic internships? If you’re an RD working from a weight inclusive approach, you probably wish you could have received better, more organized mentorship in HAES as a dietetics student. Maybe you’ve toyed with the idea of being a preceptor yourself so you could help change the field, but you’ve felt:
- Overwhelmed by the responsibility of training an intern
- Uncertain about what resources to provide
- Concerned about your clients’ privacy
- Stressed about ALL the details involved with being an organized preceptor
The good news is – you don’t have to be perfect to be an amazing preceptor, and there’s a tool to help you! Designed by a weight inclusive registered dietitian, The Intern Onboarding Toolkit is a resource created for HAES RDs in any field to efficiently orient new dietetic interns. When you implement this toolkit in your practice as a preceptor, you will feel:
- Confident that your interns will be trained well
- Positive about evidence-based reading to assign and helpful resources to recommend
- Sure your interns understand how to protect private health information
- Equipped to successfully plan organized experiences with your interns
Our profession needs more preceptors as a whole, and as dietetics practice shifts towards aligning more and more with HAES, we need YOU there to train interns in the field! It’s one thing to listen to a lecture, but another to have hands-on experience with a weight inclusive RD. To help you become an effective preceptor, The Intern Onboarding Toolkit includes:
- Step-by-step guide to effectively utilizing the toolkit (only PDF file in the kit with directions from the creator!)
- Intern Onboarding Checklist
