Looking for a rotation site to fulfill part of your dietetic internship? The Nutrition Center provides supervised practice in clinical and community nutrition. In the past, we have hosted both local and distance interns from UMASS Amherst, Keene State College, Bastyr University, Russell Sage College and others.
We collaborate with our interns to provide experiences and create projects tailored specifically to their individual needs and passions. Interns will have the opportunity to gain clinical and counseling hours in the outpatient setting at any of our four locations, under the supervision of a Registered Dietitian. Our strong presence in the community provides diverse opportunities for hands-on experiences such as developing curriculum and educational materials, teaching cooking classes and/or presenting seminars, implementing outreach events, or researching childhood disease or studying the impact of cooking on children, and much more.
The Nutrition Center welcomes interns interested in learning more about the field of nutrition or public health & community wellness. We encourage students to craft their own course of study based on areas of interest. We can point interns to local community resources including community gardens, farmers, public schools and other venues where we offer our services. TNC also offers the opportunity for interns to develop senior projects, become involved in food and wellness policy research, understand sustainable non-profit models and have exposure to potential career choices in the nutrition field.
