Upon completing the Didactic Program in Dietetics, students must complete a dietetic internship to become a registered dietitian.
Guidelines for applying to a dietetic internship (DI) can be found for Fall and Spring match cycles. UGA students can view helpful resources for applying to DI programs and the NDTR certification on this password-protected page.
All students are invited to attend DICAS Workshops led by the DPD director (3 times per year; 2 in fall, 1 in spring). During these workshops, the following information is presented: supervised practice application process overview, overview of online matching system, professional preparation for supervised practice programs, and an overview of Declaration of Intent and Verification Statement Request forms. Workshops are scheduled in conjunction with Student Dietetic Association meetings and are announced at the start of each semester.
