The Dietetic Internship (DI) program - onsite track is a full-time program that will require students to come to Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania. The student will be placed in facilities/agencies in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area and attend classes on campus. The DI program - onsite track consists of 33 graduate credits (18 supervised practice credits and 15 graduate credits). The 18 supervised practice credits are designed as experiential courses and are not accepted as part of Marywood's MS program.
The 15 graduate credits will count as part of the curriculum for the Masters in Science (MS). Upon successful completion of the DI program - onsite track the intern is eligible to take the RD exam.
It is hoped that the student will stay at Marywood University and complete a goal for a Master of Science degree in either Nutrition or Sports Nutrition and Exercise Science.
The Marywood University Dietetic Internship Program is participating in Dietetic Internship Centralized Application System (DICAS) for Spring 2013 Computer Matching Process.
