The UC Davis Medical Center Dietetic Internship begins the last Monday in August and ends 50 weeks later in August of the following year. The UC Davis Medical Center Dietetic Internship provides interns with greater than 1700 hours of supervised practice experience.
The program has a strong foundation in medical nutrition therapy (MNT) and dietetic interns will spend more than seventy-five percent of their time providing MNT in clinical nutrition and ambulatory care rotations. Approximately fifteen percent of time will be spent in on-site food service management rotations. Most rotations are at the medical center in Sacramento. Each dietetic intern’s rotation schedule will vary, however all interns will be required to attend didactic education classes approximately one day per week.
