WIC is a supplemental food and nutrition/breastfeeding education program that helps pregnant women, new mothers, and young children to eat and live healthy. Clients receive nutrition and breastfeeding counseling, vouchers for nutritious foods, and assistance with referrals to needed services. Breast pumps are available on loan for breast-feeding moms.
The selected eight dietetic interns pay $8,000 in tuition & complete 1,200 hours of supervised-practice working under registered dietitians & other preceptors. In addition to clinical medical nutrition therapy (MNT) & food service administration (FSA) rotations, community nutrition rotations include outpatient, long-term care, child development, WIC, community nutrition administration & migrant/homeless services.
Applying for our internship remains very competitive. Annually, we receive many more applications than positions available. Our goal is to recruit dietitians to work in our clinics after the internship is completed.
This program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition & Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics (AND), 120 S Riverside Plaza, Suite 2190, Chicago, IL 60606-6995;
