The mission of the Tulane Dietetic Internship is to prepare entry-level dietitians for leadership in community health practices through education, research and practice directed at health promotion and disease prevention among individuals and their communities. The purpose of the Dietetic Internship program at Tulane is to provide a comprehensive and intensive supervised practice experience, with the opportunities to acquire the competencies necessary to function as an entry-level practitioner and to make the student registration eligible in dietetics. The Dietetic Internship program will give the students the opportunity to apply clinically the nutrition and food management knowledge that they have learned in their Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD).
