Dietetic Internship Placement

The Dietetic Internship provides students with the opportunity to gain the necessary competency for careers as entry-level dietitians. The Internship builds upon the foundation, knowledge, and skills students have acquired from accredited didactic programs in dietetics. The programs includes a minimum 1200 hours of supervised practice experience in the areas of clinical nutrition, community nutrition and food management.  Upon completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take the registration examination for dietitians offered through the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). Successful completion of the RD exam is usually a prerequisite for state licensure or certification.

Students complete a separate application for the Dietetic Internships in their senior year and placement is made by a computer matching process. Acceptance into a Dietetic Internship is highly competitive and is not guaranteed. For more information about location and other requirements of the Internships please check
