Supervised Practice Experience
Once you're accepted into the Dietetics program and meet academic standards you will
be guaranteed placement in the professional phase of the Coordinated Program in Dietetics.
The accredited program cap is 30 students per cohort.
The professional phase of our Coordinated Program in Dietetics begins in the summer
between the third and fourth year of study. In this portion of the program, classroom
learning is combined with supervised practice experiences. Over the course of five
semesters, you will be provided with more than 1200 hours of supervised practice in
a variety of areas, including medical nutrition therapy, food service management,
and community nutrition.
The program is affiliated with more than 50 supervised practice sites, including teaching
and community hospitals, extended care facilities, schools, corporate organizations,
nutrition businesses, and community agencies. We continually add new sites within
driving distance of D'Youville.
We also offer an international nutrition supervised practice experience, in which
practice is provided in London, England or Sydney, Australia. More information can
be found on the /academics/study-abroad/ site.
Upon graduation you’ll be eligible to take the Registration Examination for Dietitians
in order to earn your registered dietitian (RD) or registered dietitian nutritionist
(RDN) credential. Please see the our curriculum page for more details about course offerings.
Participating in the coordinated program will require moderate additional costs. See
a full list on the Fees page.
