This is an on-site program for eligible students who completed required coursework from an accredited DPD program, accepting 12 interns per year for a 1000 hour, full-time supervised practicum (approximately 8-9  months). Applications are accepted every February for our Fall program through DICAS.  Bachelor applicants have the opportunity to partner with the University of Alabama for a dual internship/master's degree. This site can also offer a preselect option per Morrison protocols.   

Here, interns work in many settings, often paired together. Rotations are 4 days per week, allowing the 5th day to complete master's coursework and/or internship assignments to meet ACEND competencies. We offer strong clinical and food service management rotations.  With over 1000 beds, 6 ICUs, and 4 hospitals in the greater Charleston Area, interns practice under highly skilled RDN preceptors in medical nutrition therapy in practically every disease state.  This site can also provide outpatient and community opportunities such as weight management, sports nutrition, eating disorders, pediatrics, wellness, schools, long term care, and dialysis, just to name a few. Our interns can attend local dietetic association meetings, conduct a research project, and work interprofessionally with other students.
