Dietetic Internship Program

BIDMC Dietetic Intern Graduates and FacultyThe BIDMC Dietetic Internship is a 10-month program emphasizing nutrition therapy. The program provides more than 1,200 supervised hours in Clinical Nutrition, Foodservice Systems Management, and Community Nutrition.

Dietetic interns receive in-depth training in:

  • Outpatient counseling
  • Critical care nutrition
  • Enteral nutrition support
  • Parenteral nutrition support

Interns also participate in weekly classes, group projects, and academic lectures to foster learning and enrich the internship experience.

Feedback from our interns indicates their high satisfaction with the program. They appreciate the team atmosphere, the weekly class days which allow them time to connect and bond with classmates, the complex and diverse patient population, and our dedicated preceptors.

Our interns enjoy the benefits of BIDMC's close proximity to other outstanding medical and research facilities. In addition, they find time to explore nearby historical and cultural institutions such as the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Symphony Hall and, of course, Fenway Park.
