and Master of Science in Nutrition
The dietetic internship program at Concordia College is for graduates of approved undergraduate programs through a cooperative arrangement between the college, public schools and area healthcare facilities.
The mission of the combined Dietetic Internship and Master of Science in Nutrition with an emphasis in Dietetics Leadership at Concordia College is to prepare thoughtful and competent registered dietitians for advanced leadership roles in careers related to food, nutrition, and dietetics.
Concordia's dietetic internship prepared me to be a well-rounded dietitian. The rigorous structure of this program is centered around clinical, food service, and community rotations where I was given ample opportunities to apply and build upon the knowledge I gained from my undergraduate dietetic program.
With support from faculty and peers, this highly personalized system gave me the knowledge and confidence to pass the board exam on my first attempt and become the best nutrition practitioner possible.
Stephen Pierson '16, Registered Dietitian
This internship fully prepared me for the RD exam and taught me what to expect when trying to enter the food and nutrition workforce. Each rotation that I completed during my internship was challenging, exciting, influential, and an immense real-world learning experience.
The connections, friendships, and knowledge that I gained through the Concordia College Dietetic Internship are invaluable and each one had a part in building the success that I have had since graduating and becoming a registered dietitian.
Alison Ralston '15, Registered Dietitian
One of the greatest benefits of this program is the wide variety of experiences I received. I feel that after graduating from the program I was prepared for a career in a food service, clinical or community setting. The preceptors that I worked with during my rotations were dedicated to the field of dietetics and to preparing future RDs to meet their career goals.
Overall, I felt that this internship gave me a well-rounded experience that provided me with the tools I needed to pass the RD exam and begin a career that will make a difference.
