You are expected to manage a caseload of 2000 patients per year.
Each patient will attend an average of 1 x 60 minute assessment and 10 x 30 minute follow up sessions per year.
Each patient will ‘no-show’ an average of one 30 minute session during their treatment plan
The organization will cover the overhead costs of rent, electricity, phone, internet, office supplies, etc. – you only need to pay for staff from your budget
Each senior dietitian will cost a salary of $80,000/year and can see clients for 6 hours per day
Each junior dietitian will cost a salary of $65,000/year and can see clients for 5 hours per day
Each administrative assistant will cost a salary of $40,000/year and can support up to 5 dietitians
