How To Apply For Our Class Which Starts September 2021 

(First Round)

Complete All 5 Application Materials 

#1-3 Between Now and February 15, 2021.   

1. A completed application through DICAS (Between Now and February 15, 2021)

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. It is very wise to start your application now.  You may go in and out of your application as many times as you want as you add or edit information. You will not be able to get the information needed if you wait until the last minute. You will need forms completed by your DPD Program Director, your references, and your transcripts among other things. Since the individuals providing this information will be responding to many requests, it is important to make these requests VERY early.  DICAS has released an overview video which shows how to navigate through the sections of the DICAS application. View the overview video below.

2. A completed registration with D & D Digital (Completion takes 10 minutes.) 

(Between December 1, 2020 and February 15, 2021)

D & D Digital is a company which contracts with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to run the matching part of the Intern selection process.  They have nothing to do with decisions about who is matched to an Internship. Their role is to manage the software which "matches" your preferences for Internships and and Internships' preferences for applicants. The link to the D&D Digital portal is below. Scroll down to Massachusetts Internships to find Priority Nutrition Care Dietetic Internship. Very important information about D&D Digital is that applicants who have registered for the match, no additional internships can be added to your list. Below is also a short video on how to navigate the D & D Digital portal. 

3. A completed Priority Nutrition Care DI SUPPLEMENTAL APPLICATION (Completion takes 15 minutes) Between Now and February 15, 2021.

This application is submitted directly to our Program through a simple online form. It is due on the same day as the DICAS and D&D Digital due dates. The fee is $75 payable by credit or debit card.  

4. Completed Preceptor Information Forms  Due June 1, 2021 for Rotations 1 & 2

Your Preceptor fills out this form which is located on our website www.PNCDDI.com on the Preceptor page.  The information on these forms is used to confirm that the Preceptors that you contacted have agreed to precept you.  This is not an application to be a preceptor. They must be completed and submitted by your PRECEPTORS.  Use the Preceptor Contact Form button below, which is submitted electronically.  There is additional information using the Preceptor Information button below. As an applicant, you would benefit from becoming familiar with this information.

5. Rotation Schedule Form  Due June 1, 2021 for Rotations 1 & 2 Click here

This form is used to list the locations for your rotations and preceptors. You must complete this form and include your sites for the first two rotations. If you submit the form as soon as you identify your first rotation, it would be very helpful to us. When you find your next rotation, you must submit the form again.
