Our exemplary internship provides interns with the professional skill sets to practice as entry-level Registered Dietitian-Nutritionists. Interns secure supervised practice sites that meet their interests and are located in their chosen geographical areas.

Interns work eight-hour shifts, five days a week at local facilities which provide nutrition and dietetic services to people across the lifespan from diverse cultures.

NYDDI supports the diverse needs of interns. Through training links provided to our preceptors and staff we ensure an inclusive environment; fostering equitable treatment by program faculty of interns from all backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, national origin, gender/gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, size, socioeconomic status, and age.

NYDDI complies with local, state, and federal regulations, prohibiting discrimination based on an individual’s race, color, religion, sexual orientation, nationality, or disability.
