Center for Disabilities Dietetic Internship Program awarded full accreditation
The Dietetic Internship at the Center for Disabilities is a post baccalaureate program for individuals who have completed Didactic Program in Dietetics requirements and at least a bachelor’s degree. The internship provides the supervised practice experience necessary to become eligible to take the national registration examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.
The accreditation was granted for non-degree dietetic internships with an adults and children with disabilities concentration. This accreditation allows the Center for Disabilities to enroll 18 full-time interns annually in two tracks – a 10-month track for interns without a master’s degree and a seven-month track for interns who already earned a master’s degree.
“The pathway to becoming a registered dietitian requires the completion of a nationally accredited supervised practice program,” said Dr. Judy Struck, Center for Disabilities executive director. “This 10-year accreditation ensures that pathway at the Center for Disabilities will continue to prepare highly qualified dietitians to meet the healthcare needs of our state – especially those South Dakotans with a disability.”
