Mission Statement

The mission of the New Mexico State University Dietetic Internship (DI) integrates graduate-level education and research translation with real-world supervised practice activities in the fields of clinical dietetics, foodservice management and community nutrition with opportunities in Cooperative Extension Service. The successful completion of the combined master's degree + dietetic internship prepares graduates to take the national exam and serve as entry-level dietitians who work to improve the health of individuals, families and communities.
