Dietetic Internship


The Saint Louis University Dietetic Internship Program was established in 1934 and is one of the oldest and most well-established programs in the nation. During the 12-month program, interns complete 1,200 hours of supervised practice. Students who complete the internship will graduate with a Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics. A multidisciplinary approach is used to develop students' professional skills required to meet the ever-changing health care demands of society and the profession of dietetics. Upon completion of the internship and Master's requirements, graduates are qualified to sit for the national registered dietitian examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration. Over the past five years, 93% of SLU Dietetic Internship graduates have successfully passed the registration examination on their first attempt. Visit the About the DI Program page to learn more about the program and what it entails.
