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 right where you live. 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 match. We are now awarding credit for Prior Assessed Learning (PAL) which may be acquired through life or work experience and could shorten the length of the Internship by four weeks or more.

What make the Priority Nutrition Care Distance DI unique?

Save Money, Stay Close to Home, Plan for the Future

Plan your life without worrying about the implications of relocating to do your Internship. Because we are a distance program, our interns can save money by staying close to home and avoiding the costs of relocation and make connections by networking with potential future employers in their communities, while enjoying the support of family and friends.
