Priority Nutrition Care Distance Dietetic Internship

A unique full time 8 month Distance Dietetic Internship Program (30 weeks/40 hours per week) with offices in the Metropolitan Boston area, during which you can make life-long friends from other parts of the country while completing your Internship, enjoying the support of your family and friends, saving money, networking and making contacts for future employment. Although we are a large Internship (accredited for 143 Interns annually), we maintain a small Internship culture by having our Interns working in small groups (6-8 Interns). The Clinical, Food Service and Community rotations are equally divided into 8 weeks each and the culminating Elective rotation is 6 weeks in length.  We participate in both the Fall and Spring matches and we will be accepting approximately 80 Interns in this Spring's match.
