Welcome to the PCDA's Preceptor Match Portal for Independent Students


The PCDA is committed to supporting students in completing their performance indicators required to achieve competency to qualify for the Canadian Dietetic Registration Exam.


While the PCDA cannot guarantee we will be able to match you with one of our clinical dietitian members, we welcome you to submit your information allowing us to help you in seeking out potential preceptors who are available to take on students.

  • January 10th for Spring/Summer placements
