Dietetic Internship Introduction

Savage Hall

Cornell University, known for its excellence in research, teaching and extension, is proud to partner with The University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) in Rochester, NY, to offer a Dietetic Internship with a research concentration. This internship provides in‐depth, intensive community, clinical, management, and research experiences. These experiences ensure our graduates are ready for evidence-based dietetics practice as registered dietitians (RDs), for leadership in that practice, and for translational research to inform that practice. Interns begin in the fall at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY and the surrounding beautiful Finger Lakes region and transition in January to the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), an 800 bed, tertiary and trauma care facility, in Rochester, NY. We seek strong candidates with the potential to develop into exceptionally qualified and competent RDs who are committed to the profession and standards of excellence,  successfully employed, and able critically to apply research, their knowledge and enhanced skills to practice.
