The Coordinated Program in Dietetics concentration is for undergraduate students planning to become a registered dietitian who wish to coordinate their supervised practice with their academic courses.
The Coordinated Program in Dietetics concentration combines academic courses and supervised practice experience requirements of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics into a two-year sequential program. During the junior and senior years, students who are accepted into the Coordinated Program affiliate with medical nutrition therapy/foodservice/community programs in hospitals, schools, businesses and health centers, where they complete "supervised practice hours," in addition to their coursework. After completion, students are eligible to take the national Registration Examination for Dietitians. All undergraduate Food and Nutrition majors are first admitted to the Nutrition and Dietetics concentration. Admission to the Coordinated Program in Dietetics is done through an application process usually in the sophomore year, once the program prerequisites have been completed.
See the Coordinated Program in Dietetics section for more information about this program.
