Find 2019 Dietetic Internships

The Industry

Are you looking for 2017 dietetic internships or entry-level dietetic jobs? Dietitians embrace the wisdom of Hippocrates who said, “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food." They are food and nutrition experts who advise people on how to eat to improve and maintain good health. There are opportunities for dietitians in the government, nonprofit organizations, or for-profit organizations.

Dietetic Internships

To get placed in a competitive and accredited dietetic internship program, you’ll need to earn a bachelor’s degree from an accredited Didactic Program in Dietetics and meet certain GPA requirements. You can pursue a traditional, distance, or dual dietetic internship program which is a combination internship and master’s degree. You’ll be assigned to an internship through a national computer matching process and will be expected to pay tuition and fees.

Your internship will last between 8-24 months, and you’ll complete 1,200 hours of supervised rotation practice in the three major areas of dietetics: clinical dietetics, community dietetics, and food-systems management. You can pursue a specialty such as sports nutrition, public health nutrition, or research. Be sure to use the opportunity to attend professional conferences and get familiar with software like Nutrimind or DietMaster Pro with food databases that allow you to analyze and manage recipes, plan meals, and analyze food intake.

A dietetic internship will help you build the knowledge and practical skills needed to pass the national board registration exam and ultimately kick off a rewarding career as a dietitian!

The Career Options

Dietitians have many career and specialty options. Clinical dietitians provide nutrition therapy and education to help prevent disease. Community dietitians develop nutrition programs and education for the public on topics such as food, health, and nutrition. Management dietitians plan food programs for schools, prisons, and hospitals and oversee staff that implement the programs. Other dietitians carry out research or consult businesses in communication, public relations, product development, and meal planning.

The Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of dietitian and nutritionist jobs is expected to grow 16% over the next decade, which is much faster than average.
