¿Qué aprenderé?

The Master of Public Health (MPH) degree in the field of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly Community Nutrition) offers students the opportunity to develop expertise in nutrition practice from a wide range of perspectives within the health system, from disease prevention to palliation.

This dietetic education program is an accredited program recognized by the Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice (PDEP) and prepares students for eligibility for registration with a provincial dietetics regulatory body. The Master of Public Health-Nutrition and Dietetics program is one of the educational programs offered through the Division of Clinical Public Health in the Dalla Lana School of Public Health. It is administered by the Graduate Department of Public Health Sciences in collaboration with the Department of Nutritional Sciences, Faculty of Medicine.

Program Goals


Registered Dietitians will play a pivotal role to lead nutrition and dietetic practice within an evolving clinical public health landscape.


The MPH Nutrition and Dietetics program produces caring, innovative dietetic leaders and practitioners to meet the complex needs of the evolving health care system.

The curriculum provides robust academic and experiential opportunities across the health spectrum to address the health of individuals and populations from prevention to palliation.

The program is governed by a unique partnership between the University of Toronto, University Health Network and Toronto Public Health, that embodies the clinical public health philosophy.


  • Collaboration across systems and sectors
  • Compassion
  • Ethical practice and Rigour
  • Flexibility and Innovation
  • Health equity
  • Interprofessional lifelong learning

Program Philosophy

We believe that:

  • the complexity of dietetics is increasing and there is greater demand for nutrition services in all sectors of health care;
  • traditional approaches to education that limit learning to one context are increasingly of limited value;
  • the development and implementation of a new approach to dietetics education that enables more system based approaches and leadership will best address the changing nature of the healthcare landscape;
  • and the model of Clinical Public Health best advances this approach to Nutrition and Dietetics;
  • Clinical Public Health is the integration of health care services across the lifespan, challenging traditional notions of medicine and public health to promote an effective approach to health and well-being, in individuals, communities and populations.

Career Opportunities

With a comprehensive understanding of the foundations of practice in population and public health, nutrition care and management, and through the development of essential leadership, communication and professional practice skills, graduates will play a pivotal role in the future of nutrition and dietetics. Graduates will be highly competitive in the changing landscape of employment for health professionals. Currently graduates are employed in settings where nutrition professionals work such as hospitals, public health, government agencies, community health centres, family health teams, community food agencies and the food industry.
