MUSC Dietetic Interns

Welcome to the MUSC dietetic interns who are doing a two-week rotation at CIC. This dietetic internship, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), is designed to prepare students to become a "Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist" (RDN). Upon completion, graduates are eligible to sit for the national RDN exam administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR). 

To be eligable for a MUSC Dietetic Internship, you must have 1) a bachelor's degree at minimum (in any field), AND  2) successful completion of an ACEND-accredited "Didactic Program in Dietetics" (DPD).  A DPD consists of at least 2-3 semesters, depending on courses already taken, of "hard" science prerequisites and core nutrition courses to prepare students for a dietetic internship such as this one.
