Greetings from the DirectorThe growing awareness of the link between diet and human health has created an increased need for skilled dietary professionals in a variety of settings. Participants accepted to our dietetic internship are uniquely prepared for success in continued graduate study or professional service. Students completing the internship earn six-credit hours toward the M.S. in nutrition from Meredith, and are also eligible to apply for N.C. licensure upon successfully passing the R.D. exam.
