List of Dietetic Internships

Updated: Dec 25, 2018

There are numerous available dietetic internships in every state! Each varies in what they offer the student, and one may better suit your needs compared to another. The following is a list of dietetic internships sorted by state. Some internships listed here are available to apply to but are not found on the the EatRight list of dietetic internships.

Note: Just because an internship program is shorter than another doesn't necessarily mean less work required. It may mean more work packed into less time. While a longer internship may mean more time for enriching experiences you can build a career on. Even still, shorter programs have the benefit of graduating sooner.
