The Bluffton University Individualized Supervised Practice Pathway (ISPP) dietetics internship has selected its inaugural class of eight interns for 2012-13. These students are coming from many different areas of the country from San Francisco, Calif., to Tinley Park, Ill., and from right here in Bluffton.
About Bluffton's internship opportunity
This newly created ISPP has an emphasis on community and public health nutrition. This program is similar to a traditional internship in that we organize your supervised practice rotations, but with the flexibility to tailor your experience to address individual interests and goals. Additional professional enrichment opportunities include attendance at dietetics conferences, individual and group projects and seminar days. Bluffton interns will not only gain valuable dietetic experience, they will also be part of a campus community with access to educational, cultural and spiritual activities, the support of our Career Development Center services and optional on-campus housing.
Bluffton University has a long history of quality education in nutrition and dietetics. Our undergraduate didactic program has been approved/accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association) since 1985.
