Internships & Job Shadowing

Explore our Program 

Dietetic Interns & Students

Contemporary Nutrition works with distance programs to establish supervised internships, nutrition and dietetic programs that include job shadowing, class projects, and outreach or research programs.  Occasionally, we have high school seniors who spend time in the practice working on their senior project.



Each year, we accept several interns from different Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) Didactic Programs.  Contracts with the schools are established in the spring.  Students majoring in Dietetics and want to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) must complete 1200 hours supervised practice experience after completing a Bachelor of Science Degree.  The supervised practice experience is called a “Dietetic Internship”, which works much like a residency.  Each student completes rotations in all areas of dietetics practice and completes competencies in each of these areas.  These rotations are accredited supervised practice programs that meet certain requirements.  







Program Goals & Objectives

  • Provide a hands-on comprehensive learning experience to prepare students to sit for the licensure exam to practice as a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist
  • Develop interns who are proficient in Medical Nutrition Therapy and Nutritional Counseling for several populations
  • Offer an environment in which interns understand the variety of tasks required for operating a successful private practice

  • Foster effective communication between intern, patients, dietitians and other professionals
