Upon graduation from the Didactic Program in Dietetics at Miami University, an individual may apply for an accredited dietetic internship. Admission to dietetic internships is extremely competitive. Each internship looks at grade point average, work experience and leadership qualities to determine who they will select. It is important to realize that not all students are accepted into a dietetic internship and that there is currently a shortage of available internship positions.

After successfully completing an accredited dietetic internship, you are eligible to sit for the National Registratraion Examination for Dietetics. A passing score is required for an individual to become a registered dietitian.
