The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics requires Registered Dietitians to complete didactic academic courses, to participate in 1200 hours of supervised practice, and to take a national Registration Exam.
The Coordinated Program in Dietetics (CPD) allows students to take the academic courses coordinated with the supervised practice experience. Students in Framingham State University's accredited program have a high pass rate on the national exam. The program prepares the student to function as an entry-level dietitian on the medical team, a foodservice director, or a community nutritionist. The Framingham State University's CPD concentration is School Nutrition.
