The DPD Handbook and resources are offered to dietetics students to assist you with determining where to apply for supervised practice and to help you prepare your applications. Please read the DPD Handbook in full and plan to ask questions at the fall DPD meetings.
Cornell DI Preselect Option
Cornell students may wish to consider applying to the Dietetic Internship (DI) program at Cornell University. Application to the DI is separate. The Cornell DI is highly competitive. The Cornell DI program offers early application each year for Cornell DPD students. This process is referred to as "preselect." Application deadlines for the Cornell DI, including pre-select, can be found at Cornell's Dietetic Internship page. Interviews for Cornell DI preselect applicants are typically completed by late January. Students who are accepted via the preselect process do not need to go through the match process. Students interested in a very strong general internship with high quality rotations in community, research, clinical and management are advised to consider preselect for Cornell's DI. Students interested in the Cornell DI are strongly advised to meet with Cornell's DI Director prior to application.
