Due to the Pandemic, we expect to have openings in our January/February 2021 class. We are participating in the Second Round Match for our class which starts in February 2021 with virtual orientation during the last week of January 2021.  The calendar for our January class is on our website.  

We will consider applications from candidates who are able to participate in our 3 day Virtual Orientation at the end of January and our Friday activities starting on February 1, but not able to start their Monday through Thursday rotations until March 15th, which allows more time to find preceptors.

Email us at Admissions.PriorityNutrition@Gmail.com if you are interested in applying.

Available positions will be filled on a first come first serve basis (subject to meeting our admissions criteria).  While it is called the "second round match", There is no matching during this process. Applicants may apply now to be prepared for the second round.  We will offer positions immediately after the first round match.  You must accept an offer of admission immediately when offered and be prepared to pay the non-refundable deposit within 24 hours by credit card. That means that you should be familiar with our program when applying.  D&D Digital registration is NOT required.

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 we 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.

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.
