What is it?
This is the first ever Canadian Dietetic Registration Exam (CDRE) comprehensive notes-based study guide for Dietetic students who are preparing to write the CDRE.

As students, the Dietitians bringing you this course found there was a major lack of guidance and direction in preparing to write the CDRE. They felt lost and didn't know where to begin tackling the mountain of information needed to cover - a shared experience between virtually every classmate and dietitian they had, and continue to come across.

While the U.S. has 5 core resources available to students in preparation for the CDR (CDRE equivalent), there is only one resource in Ontario outside of the official CDRE Preparatory Guide issued by the College of Dietitians. This is the first guide to consolidate and review all of the required knowledge concepts tested in the CDRE - an integral part of the study process.


Why it's SO worth it:
  • Save 160+ hours compiling your notes and resources (equivalent to minimum $7200 based on average RD hourly pay)
  • Save $600 in CDRE exam fees in having to re-write the exam + spare yourself a lot of pain in creating a supervision plan or postponing your job search
  • Direction - access to an organized guide and pre-created study schedule you can tailor around your own life responsibilities (whether you're working or have a family)
  • All your notes in one place; these are truly the only notes you will need in preparation for this exam
  • Thorough professional preparation for every area of dietetic practice

Ina Benkova, RD, MPH was a colleague of Dora's at University of Toronto who greatly benefited from her hard work when her time came to writing the registration exam. 
She gained access to this treasure trove of a resource which prepared her for testing and gave her confidence in writing this difficult exam. 
Once the exam was over and she had been successful, Ina knew this study guide could not be hidden away, tucked in a folder. She reached out to Dora urging them to work together to bring this study material to the other students in the same position.
She specializes in the dietetic areas of weight management, sports nutrition and women's health in her private practice. Her role is in the administration and user experience of this project making it available to up and coming RDs.

about the development

Who developed the study guide?
Dora Latalisa, RD, MPH is a graduate from the University of Toronto's Master in Public Health in Nutrition and Dietetics program and practicing dietitian, with expertise in bariatric and renal dietetics.
She created this guide from the ground up, investing 160+ hours in its development. Dora went through the rigorous process of extracting the most relevant and pertinent content from key university textbooks, graduate school notes, best practice guidelines, government standards, public health documents, and the jurisprudence manual. 

She passed not only the CDRE (Canadian) but also the CDR (American) registration exams using this comprehensive guide on her first attempt in both cases.
