Success is defined by:

  1. Successfully completing rotations
  2. Scoring well on evaluations
  3. Preparing for the Registration Exam
  4. Passing the exam

Periodically, the challenge to complete assignments requires remediation. Remediation could include, but is not be limited to; NYDDI conducting virtual meetings, providing technical instruction, counseling, referrals for RD prep tutoring, and other resources to give an intern every chance to succeed.

Within the allotted time frame, if an intern cannot satisfactorily complete assignments, regularly pass quizzes, prepare quality materials for presentations, receive satisfactory evaluations, or demonstrates insufficient entry-level skills, the program director will schedule a formal virtual meeting to counsel and advise the intern regarding their options. This may include but is not limited to adopting a career better suited to their ability.

As an example, another career might be a Dietetic Technician, Registered (DTR) or Dietary Manager. NYDDI will assist in these decisions while providing support and resources for these or other options.

Should an intern decide to resign from the program an email with an attached letter must be sent to the program director.

Regardless of the reason for resignation or dismissal, NYDDI does not provide a refund of either the deposit or balance of payment. Once you commit to entering the NYDDI program, we hold your place and do not give it out away to another applicant. If you have further questions, please revisit our refund policy.
