Announcement:

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (MDHSS) Program for Dietetic Interns (PDI) will be closing its Dietetic Internship program at the completion of the 2015/2016 academic year. The effective date of closure is August 15, 2016. We will no longer be accepting applications for the internship program. If a current intern does not complete the program by August 15, 2016 they will not be considered a graduate of an Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) accredited program or eligible to sit for the Commission on Dietetic Registration’s (CDR) Registered Dietitian (RD) exam. The State WIC Office will continue to facilitate public health/community nutrition rotations for dietetic students and interns from other dietetic education and internship programs.
