Prospective Dietetic Interns

Dear Prospective Dietetic Intern,

Thank you for your interest in the Dietetic Internship at New Mexico State University. Our program combines the dietetic internship with a graduate program leading to a Master of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences. Upon successful completion of the Combined Master's Degree + Dietetic Internship, the student qualifies to take the registration examination to become a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist (RD/RDN).

Our combined Master's Degree + Dietetic Internship has a concentration in the area of Community Nutrition in Cooperative Extension Service. New Mexico State University is the state's Land Grant University. The dietetic interns accepted into this program will be given the unique opportunity to work with Cooperative Extension Service professionals at the county and state level to provide community nutrition programming and develop materials that can be used by the Cooperative Extension Service on a statewide basis. Experiences will include community needs assessments, program planning, and program delivery.
