The Benedictine University Dietetic Internship program will host an open house from 1:00-3:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 3 in Room 230 of the Michael and Kay Birck Hall of Science. The Benedictine University Dietetic Internship program can be combined with either the Master of Science in Nutrition and Wellness (M.S.N.W.) degree program or the Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) program to qualify graduates to sit for the registration examination to become a licensed and registered dietician. The combined master’s degree/dietetic internship program is designed for those whose career aspirations may include nutrition and health education assessment, planning, program delivery, counseling, outcome evaluation and program administration in community, school, outpatient, corporate wellness and private practice settings. Benedictine’s undergraduate and graduate nutrition programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE) of the American Dietetic Association, 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2000, Chicago, Illinois 60606-6995 (312-899-0040).
