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