The Dietetic Internship Application Process
Dr. Bennett will discuss the process by which students apply for admission into dietetic internships. Completion of these accredited programs is a requirement for those seeking careers as Registered Dietitians. This program is useful for senior level students applying this winter for admission in the summer and fall. It is also useful (perhaps even more so), for junior and sophomore level students wanting to learn what they need to do to improve their chances of admission into these competitive programs.
* Thursday, October 18 @ 6:00 pm in
Michaelsen room 129
Summer Field Experience Seminar
Linda Cashman will discuss with students interested in doing a summer field experience examples of past experiences and the process for establishing one. Students who completed field experiences last summer will provide a brief overview of their experiences. Dietetic-related experience is often a critical factor in determining who gets admitted into dietetic internships. Since many health care institutions are now requiring additional paperwork, students planning on doing a summer experience are urged to attend.
* Tuesday, November 6 @ 6 pm in
Michaelsen room 129
Second Nutrition Science Club meeting.
2007 annual meeting of the
American Dietetic Association (Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo, FNCE)
Min Kim, Liane Fernyhough, and Kim Warfel along with four faculty members from CWU's Food Science and Nutrition Program attended the annual conference in Philadelphia, PA. This conference was attended by over 11,000 participants. Six posters were presented by CWU faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students. Participants were able to learn about the most recent developments in the dietetic profession, attend sessions specifically for students, view (and consume) hundreds of products from food related companies, and meet many dietitians. The meeting held each fall will be held next year in Chicago. Students are urged to consider attending this valuable experience.
