NEW INTERNSHIP TO BE DISCUSSED
Dr. Deborah Myers, an associate professor and director of Bluffton Universitys dietetics program, will provide a "Prelude to a New Program: The Bluffton Dietetic Internship" at 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10, in Stutzman Lecture Hall in Centennial Hall. The colloquium presentation is free and open to the public.
The Bluffton undergraduate dietetics program prepares students for a post-baccalaureate internship, dietetics registration and licensure. An accredited internship is necessary for students to be eligible to take the national registration examination. Blufftons new dietetic internship, a nine-month program, will begin in fall 2012 and give students a Bluffton-based internship option.
Blufftons undergraduate dietetics program is accredited by the American Dietetic Associations Commission on Accreditation of Dietetics Education, and places more than 90 percent of its graduates in ADA internship positions within a year of graduation. Graduates go on to work in hospitals and long-term care facilities, nutrition counseling, food service management, research/teaching, public health departments, fitness and health centers, private practices and corporations.
