Dietetic Technicians

Dietetic technicians work in a variety of health- or food-related settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, public health agencies, weight management clinics, correctional facilities, and food companies. They serve in two basic areas: as service personnel in food-service administration and as assistants in clinical nutrition, which is the nutritional care of individuals. Some dietetic technicians are involved in both kinds of activities, while others concentrate on one area. Specific duties and responsibilities vary widely, depending on where technicians work and their specialty.
