In 1929, the Dietetic Internship at Vanderbilt graduated the first class of dietetic interns. Since it’s beginning, over 1000 entry level dietitians have graduated and are now serving communities in both the United States and abroad.
We have strategically developed an internship network of 65+ preceptors and 25 rotations in clinical, food systems management and community practice venues. Our network supports the development of entry level practitioners that are difference makers and leaders.
Private gifts help strengthen our programs so that we can train future dietitians to become leaders and make an impact in the areas of food and nutrition. To continue offering an excellent educational experience for our dietetic interns, we need your help.
