• Selection Criteria

  • Selection of students for admission to the internship program is the responsibility of the selection committee.

    Admission Requirements
    Applicants must have completed the Didactic Program in Dietetics accredited by ACEND of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and must hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university prior to beginning the internship. Additional coursework in nutrition and foodservice systems management is required to update degrees that were completed five or more years prior to application. All courses taken to satisfy the recency of education requirements must have been completed within the last five years.

    A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale is required.

    Letters of Recommendation
    Three professional references are required. Select your references to include professors, recent employers and volunteer supervisors.

    Work Experience
    Dietetics-related or food service experience is very helpful, whether paid or volunteer work.

    Communication Skills
    Effective oral and written communication skills are necessary.

    Equal Opportunity Employer
    Penrose-St. Francis Health Services is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate based on race, religion, color, sex, national origin, age or disability. Applicants with physical disabilities will be considered, provided the disability will not prevent adequate performance as a dietetic intern. A pre-admission health screening, drug test and background check will be given to all matched interns (at no cost to the intern). Should you possess any limitations or restrictions that might impede your ability to perform essential functions of the job, it is your responsibility to disclose these at the time of the pre-employment health screening.
