The community, clinical and management rotations include 6 weeks of supervised research in which interns develop the critical thinking and research skills needed for outcomes research and evidence based decision-making in practice. Interns each complete a pilot research project to enhance their community placement program and present the research in a poster session at the New York State Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics meeting.  Interns engage in clinical nutrition research.  They also plan and conduct more autonomously a ‘problem-solving' management research project.
