Combined Dietetic Internship/Master’s Degree Program

The Combined Dietetic Internship/Master’s Degree Program combines academic work with clinical practice at either of the dietetic internships at University Hospitals of Cleveland or the Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center or Cleveland Clinic. Cleveland Clinic interns are also able to concurrently participate in their internship and the master's degree program. A minimum of 27 semester hours is required. Admission is contingent on the student’s being selected and matched to one of the hospitals. Appointment to these internships follows the admission procedure outlined by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Coursework is planned individually with the student's academic advisor. This program is a non-thesis program of study.
