Dietetic Technicians in Hospital Food Sevrvice

Dietetic technicians may specialize in a particular area such as nutritional care or food service management. Nutritional care technicians determine the nutritional needs of their patients by interviewing them and reviewing their medical histories. They help patients plan meals that fit into their prescribed diet and food budget. Besides they report the patient’s progress or any dietary problems to the supervising dietitian.

If you want to enter a hospital dietetic technician program, then you should have a high school diploma or the equivalent. Becoming a dietetic technician requires obtaining an associate degree from an accredited university that is approved by the American Dietetic Association. These programs usually include classroom study and 450 hours of supervised practice experience. After completion of the program individuals must pass a test called the Registration Examination for Dietetic Technicians.

In addition, 50 hours of continuing education hours must be completed every 5 years. Dietetic technicians in a food service management plan meals and menus for many people, order and stock food and supplies, oversee the production of meals and services, and maintain quality control and safety standards.

Moreover, they may be in charge of designing and implementing new food service systems to make facilities run more efficiently. Dietetic technicians may work with computer systems to verify diet orders, record laboratory data, and to calculate payroll.
