Internship Hours & Locations

hours and locations

The Program for Dietetic Interns (PDI) is a 40-week full time dietetic internship program with an area of concentration in public health/community nutrition. The average time spent per week in supervised practice is 40 hours plus. The PDI requires more time than college due to assignments, projects, early/late rotation hours and weekend hours. A minimum of 1200 hours of supervised practice experiences and approximately 200 hours of classroom/didactic instruction are scheduled. Additional time is required outside of supervised practice and classes to complete homework and assignments and to attend professional meetings. The supervised practice sites may require that the intern be available for training/experiences in the evenings, holidays and weekends.

Locations

Rotations are currently located in the following areas of the state of Missouri for the 2013-2014 interns. Locations are subject to change yearly. When two or more interns are from the same area of the state or request the same area of the state for rotations and rotation sites will only take one intern, preference is given according to ranking of the intern during the selection process.
