To be eligible for the internship, you must have both completed a bachelor's degree and have a verification statement from an ACEND-accredited Didactic Program in Dietetics. Our department does not offer the courses that may be required to obtain this verification statement. If you are interested in the internship but have not majored in nutrition in college, you will need to take additional undergraduate nutrition courses and should e-mail the Dietetic Internship Director, Marsha Piacun at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Tulane University Dietetic Internship participates in a pre-selection process in addition to the computer matching process. In the pre-selection process, the program can select up to 3 students per year who have met the pre-selection admission requirements. To be considered for pre-selection, a student must be enrolled in the Tulane MPH Nutrition program. The student must graduate prior to beginning the Dietetic Internship. The DPD courses must be completed prior to the beginning of the Dietetic Internship.
The applicant must bring a complete application packet to the Director of the Dietetic Internship by January 1 (application forms, 3 recommendations, letter of application, DPD verification statement, transcripts). The applicant will be notified on or before February 1 confirming her/his acceptance or rejection into the program through the pre-selection process. The remaining number of positions will be filled through the computer matching process.
If preselected, the DI program director will provide to D&D Digital the list of students preselected along with their e-mail addresses by the February 1 deadline. D&D Digital will use this information to ensure that the applicant does not participate in the computer match. If the applicant is not selected through the preselection process, he/she may reapply to this or any other DI through the computer matching process. The deadline for application for the April computer match is February 15.
Application Deadline: February 15 of each year (refer to the D&D Digital and DICAS websites)
