MT VA HCS RD/CDE POSITIONS – posted 4/8/18

Good day,

We would love to share this great opportunity in Montana and assist Veterans with their diabetes and nutritional needs.

Montana VA Health Care System is searching for two (2) full-time Registered Dietitian/Certified Diabetes Educators (RD/CDE). One position will be in our Billings Community Based Outpatient Clinic, located in Billings, MT and the other will be at the Fort Harrison Medical Center, located in Helena, MT.

The RD/CDE works closely with the interdisciplinary healthcare team to ensure that Veterans’ nutritional needs are being met, including management of specialized meal plans in coordination with medication regimes. The RD/CDE is responsible for the medical nutrition therapy of complex outpatient Veterans within the Montana VA Health Care System requiring education and support to understand and manage diabetes. As an RD, this individual may cover additional nutrition practice areas beyond a diabetes focus and must possess the required knowledge and skills in order to perform these functions.

We are planning on developing a diabetes program that will be accredited by the American Association of Diabetes Educators or education recognition by the American Diabetes Association.
