We are participating in the Second Round Match and we have several openings in our Class which starts with orientation in the Boston area on January 28, 29 and 30, 2020.  Your first rotation would start on either February 3, 2020 or March 30, 2020, depending on whether you have a preceptor in place for the February start date.  If you have a preceptor for the first rotation, you would be able to start on February 3rd. If you do not, you would have ample time to set up preceptors and be ready for March 30.

Email us at Internship@PriorityNutritionCare.com or text us at 781-264-6877 and include your cell phone number and time zone. We are reviewing applications now. We will work with you even if you did not plan to attend a distance program and do not yet have preceptors. 


We were recently given approval to increase the spaces available in our program.  Available positions will be filled on a first come first serve basis (subject to meeting our admissions criteria).  There is no matching during this process. Applicants apply and are accepted or not accepted on a rolling basis. You will be notified of your admission within 24 hours of our receiving a complete application from you. You must accept an offer of admission immediately when offered. That means that you should be familiar with our program.  DICAS and D&D Digital registration is NOT required.

Applications are welcome from Applicants who: 

Did not receive a match to another program in the just completed match

Did not receive a match in previous rounds

Are new graduates/applicants who have not previously applied to an internship

Depending on your individual situation, we will recommend the most expeditious way for you to submit your application.

If you have previously applied through DICAS, we may ask you to:

1. Redirect your DICAS application to Priority Nutrition Care Distance Dietetic Internship

DICAS (the Dietetic Internship Centralized Application Service) collects application materials in one place so that you need only to send your information to one place and Internships may view your material easily. DICAS has nothing to do with decisions about who is matched to an Internship. Their sole responsibility is to provide a place online where your application materials will be stored. DICAS has released an overview video which shows how to navigate through the sections of the DICAS application. 

2. Complete a Priority Nutrition Care DI SUPPLEMENTAL APPLICATION

This application is submitted directly to our Program through a simple online form The fee is $75 payable by credit or debit card.  

3. Complete a Rotation Schedule Form

This form is used to list the locations for your rotations and preceptors. You must complete this form and include your preceptor(s) and site(s) for the first rotation .  

4. Have your proposed Preceptors complete Information Forms 

The Preceptor forms which are located on our website www.PNCDDI.com on the Preceptor page are used to confirm that the Preceptors that you contacted have agreed to precept you. This is not an application to be a preceptor. These forms must be completed and submitted by your PRECEPTORS. The link to our Preceptor Information Form, which is submitted electronically, is below.

Additional information for Preceptors is found under the Preceptor tab. As an applicant, you would benefit from becoming familiar with this information.
