Dietitian vs. Nutritionist
What is the difference?
The main difference between the two professions is that only a Dietitian (with an accreditation from the Dietitian’s Association of Australia) is qualified to provide medical nutrition therapy or clinical nutrition consultations in either an individual or group setting.
