Dietetic Intern Selection Process

Last year, our program received 99 applications for 12 positions. The protocol for internship appointments is mandated by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. A selection committee comprised of the Program Director, Assistant Program Director and four dietitian preceptors evaluate the applications. Intern selection is based on the following criteria:

  1. Letter of Application -- content, insight into personal and professional goals, and ability to provide information requested.
  2. Grades 
    Overall GPA: 3.2 or higher
    Professional coursework: 3.5 or higher
  3. Work Experience 
    Dietetic and Food Service Systems 
    Work experience in other fields 
  4. Letters of Reference--insight into the applicant's personal and professional abilities
  5. Honors, Scholarships, and Student Activities 


Each applicant will receive notification from the D&D Digital Computer Matching Service of their acceptance to a program by the middle of April. Please check the D&D Digital website for exact timeline.
