Dietetic Internship Only Option

The Dietetic Internship only option is for applicants who have earned a Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) Verification Statement (or will by the start of their internship start date) and have already or will earn a master’s degree any discipline prior to the completion of their internship experience.

This is a non-degree option for those applicants who only require the supervised practice portion of their learning. All supervised practice rotation sites will be coordinated by the VCUHS Dietetic Internship, and occur onsite in Richmond, Virginia. Interns do not have to secure their own practice sites. We do not offer a part-time or distance option.

For applicants who wish to complete their graduate degree concurrent to the internship experience, it is highly recommended that a minimum of 18 graduate credit hours be completed PRIOR to the start of the internship portion of study. Please contact the Program Director prior to applying to discuss your course of study if you plan to be enrolled in a master's degree program during your internship experience.

With the current minimum degree requirements to establish eligibility for the National Examination for Registered Dietitians at a graduate level, completion of graduate coursework after the conclusion of your internship experience may delay your ability to sit for the exam.
