Dietetic Internship

Program Mission

The mission of the UC Davis Medical Center Dietetic Internship is to offer learning experiences in dietetics that will provide the dietetics profession and the community with highly skilled, lifelong learners that maintain exceptional standards of practice and ethics necessary to perpetuate the dietetics profession.  As part of a university teaching hospital, we strive to provide quality nutrition care that is evidence-based and innovative, in addition to acknowledging the value and dignity of each patient.  The dietetic internship will integrate an intern’s academic knowledge with planned practical experiences while developing an intern’s analytical skills.  Those practical experiences build upon one another, as does the depth of critical thinking so that an intern can successfully work through complex nutrition related situations.  We are committed to training dietitians ready for entry-level practice in a multidisciplinary setting.
