Dietetic Internship (DI)
The Department of Dietetics & Nutrition has successfully prepared dietetic practitioners through a Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) and a Coordinated Program (CP) for nearly five decades. As part of our continuous quality improvement efforts, the department has established a Dietetic Internship (DI) program.
The Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) will require, as of January 1, 2024, a minimum of a master’s degree to be eligible to take the credentialing exam to become a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN).
The Dietetic Internship (DI) program at Florida International University’s (FIU) Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work has been granted full accreditation status by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) | Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2190, Chicago, IL 60606-6995.
