Matching to an Internship

Students can improve their chances of matching to an internship by earning good grades (A's and B's), displaying outstanding character at all times, obtaining relevant work experience, seeking meaningful volunteer experiences, and developing leadership and time management skills. UNF faculty work closely with students and alumni to assist them with the internship application process. Students may apply to internship programs in the spring of their senior year and if accepted they typically start in August or September. Students pay for the tuition and all other expenses associated with their dietetic internship. After completing the internship and passing the RD examination, alumni may apply for Florida licensure through the Department of Health, Division of Medical Quality Assurance.
