4approaches. These types of training approach integrate basic knowledge with social and clinical presentations, exposing students to realistic complex clinical cases: aspects that require clinical reasoning, problem solving, and decision making. The current study employed the service concept by using the “adopt-a-patient” approach for students to practice nutrition assessment techniques with real-life subjects. This content-related service learning approach combined classroom instruction, laboratory practice, and real-life experiences to provide students with broad and practical challenges in interactive person-centered cases, which fit the experiential learning recommended by the Council on Future Practice of the Academy in its most recent visioning report to prepare future successful dietetic practitioners.
