Dietic Internship Program


There is an increasing awareness that the diets people consume contribute to the quality of their life. In addition, studies have shown that people’s susceptibility to chronic disease is influenced by their diet. Dietary-influenced chronic disease is not only observed in affluent communities, but is increasingly seen in those that are economically compromised. Located in the Bronx, Lehman College is uniquely placed to assist in educating interns to develop approaches to support the community to move toward dietary change to optimize health.

The mission of the Lehman College Dietetic Internship Program is to provide interns with a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience through which they can acquire the knowledge, skills, and practical training required of entry-level dietitians.
