Coordinated Program in Dietetics Concentration

If you are passionate about food, nutrition, and health, the Coordinated Program in Dietetics (CPD) is the fastest path to become a registered dietitian.

FSU’s Coordinated Program graduates twenty-four undergraduate and graduate students ready to sit for the national Registration Exam to become a registered dietitian.

Graduates of Framingham State University's accredited CPD program have a pass rate of over 90% 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.

In the Coordinated Program in Dietetics (CPD), you will take the didactic academic courses coordinated with supervised practice experiences. In this way, you enhance your learning by simultaneously applying textbook knowledge to real life situations (supervised practice experiences). On campus, you exchange ideas with other students in seminars coordinated with classroom topics. Thus, you develop knowledge and skills in critical thinking, management, communications, counseling and technology. To broaden your exposure to the nutrition field, you will be placed at three different facilities.

Entrance into the CPD is by application only. Applications are accepted in the spring semester for entrance the following fall. You must be a matriculated as either an undergraduate or graduate student to apply to the CPD.

Dr. Suzanne Neubauer is the Director of the Coordinated Program in Dietetics.
