The Priority Nutrition Care Distance Dietetic Internship
THE PRIORITY NUTRITION CARE DISTANCE DIETETIC INTERNSHIP is A unique 30 week Distance Dietetic Internship with offices in the Metropolitan Boston area, during which you can make life long friends from other parts of the country during the completion of your Internship, while enjoying the support of your friends and family, saving money and making contacts for future employment. Although we are a large Internship (143 Interns annually), we maintain a small Internship culture by having our Interns assigned to small groups (6-8 Interns). We will accept approximately 80 Interns in the Fall match. Our office is located in the metropolitan BOSTON area and we require you to come to Boston only once for 3 days of orientation.
