  2. Program for Dietetic Interns (PDI): The Program for Dietetic Interns (PDI) is now taking applications for the 2013-2014 class year. Up to four interns will be chosen from the pre-select option. This is advantageous for eligible employees of local WIC providers. The deadline for the pre-select option is Dec. 15th. There is no fee for those interns who are employed by the MDHSS WIC program or employed by a Missouri Local WIC Provider. A $3,000 fee applies to all other interns. Be sure to use the "new" application form, which is required (see attached). The Dietetic Internship Recommendation form is also attached for your use. For more information, visit our website. If you have any questions, please contact Vicki Strickland at 800-392-8209 or Vicki.Strickland@health.mo.gov. (TWO ATTACHMENTS)
