Meredith College’s Accreditation Council for Education and Nutrition (ACEND)-accredited Dietetic Internship program provides college graduates who have met the DPD requirements with the knowledge and supervised practice needed to enter this fast-growing field of nutrition. The dietetic internship prepares men and women for the R.D. exam and, ultimately, a career as a Registered Dietitian. Meredith’s location is ideal for internship participants, who can work at some of the world’s top corporations and medical centers, as well as in local human services agencies and school systems. And, those completing the internship earn six credit hours toward the M.S. in Nutrition from Meredith.
