The University of Northern Colorado’s (UNC) dietetic internship is a unique distance program that accepts up to thirty interns per year nationwide. UNC’s dietetic internship program is designed to prepare interns as entry-level dietitians.
Students are responsible for organizing and selecting the facilities where they want to complete their practice experience (minimum of 1200 hours) along with designing their internship program according to the UNC guidelines which support ACEND’s required competencies. In addition, this internship program provides four academic graduate credits through two required online courses that are completed during the first two weeks of the internship. All interns must attend a three day mandatory orientation in Greeley, Colorado in order to better prepare them for their dietetic internship. All resources and additional information are available for review on the UNC Dietetic Internship website.
