UMMC Dietetic Internship on graduation day

The UMMC Dietetic Internship, started in 1990, is a clinically-focused ten-month program.

We start in September the first Tuesday after Labor Day and finish late June.

Four interns are accepted annually, allowing extensive individual attention between intern and preceptor. Interns are mentored to develop clinical competencies, critical thinking, and complex nutrition assessment, counseling and communication skills.

Rotations, classes and other learning experiences are designed to meet the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).
