Dietetic Internship Program Overview
Our interns enter the program as officers of the U.S. Army. In addition to preparing our interns to be entry-level dietitians, our curriculum emphasizes those skills needed by military dietitians to assume the diverse responsibilities of supporting the U.S. Army.
Currently we have Army dietetic interns assigned to San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC), Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC), and Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC).
