About the Internship

The University of Maryland College Park dietetic internship is a post-graduate, certificate-based, supervised practice program that provides a thorough training in general dietetics with an emphasis on Information Management and Communication/Nutrition Informatics.

Many learning experiences are planned for the intern to broaden his/her scope of the dietetics field with an emphasis on the application of information technology and nutrition informatics. Through supervised practice experiences at mostly off-campus facilities, the intern develops a diverse range of skills, has an opportunity to meet many potential role models and to develop a wide network of professional contacts in the Baltimore-Washington area. Further, these varied experiences will assist interns in developing critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, effective communication skills and collaborative team-building skills.
