The community hours not assigned to MND 530/MND 555 are expected to be accrued over the length of the program.  This allows for students to choose some community events and/or rotations where they have particular interests.  In addition, it includes some required community events that do not fit into the typical work day or work week.  The experiences that are required by all students and the approximate hours associated with those experiences are listed below.  There are a number of optional and unplanned community events that occur during the year that the student can participate in and count as community hours.  An optional experience is the Baby Affair.

In addition, students are required to attend all meetings of the Southwest Missouri Dietetic Association; attendance does not count towards supervised practice hours, but meets competency CDR 2.9.
