The Dietetic Internship Program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center uses the on-line centralized internship application, referred to as DICAS.
Sixteen interns are selected for the 10 month – 44 week program – which typically runs from August to June.
Applications are reviewed by a selection committee which includes internship faculty, preceptors and current interns.
Applicants may write to or call the director to discuss any conditions that might involve special accommodations; however, this is not a requirement for admission and will not be considered in the selection process.
Applicants are encouraged to visit the facility or call the internship staff to discuss the program. However, information from these visits is not used to select applicants, nor is preference given to candidates who choose to visit.
Appointments are awarded without regard to race, sex, religion, color, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, military service, or genetic information.Marital status, age and geographic area of the applicant are not considered.
