Alternative to Traditional Dietetic Internships

Any student majoring in Dietetics understands they need to complete an accredited post-graduate dietetic internship after they complete their undergraduate degree.  They also know that getting into a dietetic internship is very competitive.   In case you don’t know there were 4000 applications for 2000 dietetic internship positions last year!  That calculates out to a 50% chance of getting into an DI.

Well, the American Dietetic Association (soon to be the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics) has established an alternative to the traditional dietetic internship called Individualized Supervised-Practice Pathways or ISPPs.  Read more about ISSPs at  http://www.eatright.org/CADE/content.aspx?id=6442465002&terms=ISPP
