Advanced Practice Workshop

2021 Advanced Practice Workshop

This 1.5 day workshop aims to help sports RDs who are currently building or growing a program; those who have been newly promoted within their jobs to a more senior/director role or have been hired with the opportunity to grow a new program.  Guided discussions by a variety of veteran sports RDs will be used to help each attending sports RD think through their mission and vision for their program to establish a lasting infrastructure to meet the needs of their specific institution or organization.

Who should attend?
Full time sports RDs who have been at their job for 6 mos to 3 years and are looking for guidance on how to better build their services into a program rather than just being utilized as person on staff.  Attendees may or may not have benefitted from mentorship already, but should be ready to take their career to a new level.  They must be in a growth mindset to benefit. Veteran Sports RDs will provide insight into their own successes and shortcomings early in their careers for key learnings within the workshop.  This will allow for thoughtful discussion and planning for the future of attendee’s sports nutrition programs within their own institution or organization.
Call for Applications:
Applications will open in early March. Space is limited.  The Advanced Practice Workshop Committee will read through the applications and choose the group of Sports RDs who will benefit most from the workshop content.
Once the applicants are selected:
Applicants will be asked to commit to attending the Thursday evening and Friday workshop.  Upon committing to attend, applicants will submit their Mission and Vision along with a self evaluation questionnaire including feedback on their greatest strengths and weaknesses within their programs.  Focus groups and content of the workshop will then be directly created to meet the maturity of each program.
When is the Advanced Practice Workshop?
The 2021 Advanced Practice Workshop will be in early June 2021 with location TBD.
