Information for the DI-Bound Student

Attention students who have earned a DPD Verification Statement and who are eligible for a dietetic internship...

Along with the MS degree program and advanced certificate, Stony Brook University's Department of Family, Population & Preventive Medicine also offers an ACEND-accredited dietetic internship program for those pursuing the Registered Dietitian credential. 

DI-eligible students with an undergraduate GPA of 3.2 or better, who have successfully completed a minimum of 6 graduate credits in our MS program, are guaranteed an interview for the Stony Brook Dietetic Internship during the DI application process if they choose to apply.  They would need to contact the Program Administrator, Sharon Schmidt, if they would like to be interviewed. A student who applies in subsequent application cycles is not guaranteed an interview as a result of their Stony Brook MS graduate coursework.
