Applications open annually in May and close by July 1. Interviews via video of phone are optional. The number of integrative and functional interns accepted varies annually based on the preceptors ability to provide valuable experience to meet the students needs, and credentialing or educational requirements. All interns are required to complete an application and sign an Intern Agreement and HIPAA Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Statement. Internships may be 2-4 weeks for dietetic interns or run throughout the full calendar year, depending on the needs of the student and availability of preceptors for supervision. No clinical supervision is offered virtually, and must be in the office setting, however, some projects may be completed outside the office.
