Lehman College

Dietetic Internship Program


There is an increasing awareness that the diets people consume contribute to the quality of their life. Studies have shown that people’s susceptibility to chronic disease is influenced by their diet. Dietary-influenced chronic disease is not only observed in affluent communities, but is increasingly seen in those that are economically compromised. Located in the Bronx, Lehman College is uniquely placed to assist in educating interns to become competent entry-level dietitians in order to develop approaches to support the community in moving toward dietary change to optimize health.

Thank you for attending the Open House on January 24th. Reminder that the deadline for the DICAS application and D&D Digital is February 15. Portal closes 11:59 Central Time. The Lehman DI accepts 14 interns and we wish the best of luck to all of you!

Program Mission

The mission of the dietetic internship at Lehman College is to provide interns with a comprehensive learning experience through which they can acquire the competencies, knowledge, skills, and hands-on training required to prepare interns for the dietetic profession, with an emphasis on medical nutrition therapy. Lehman College interns are ethical and culturally diverse and the program welcomes all applicants with the appropriate qualifications.
