Dietetic Internship Program Overview
Our interns enter the program as officers in a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. In addition to preparing our interns to be entry-level dietitians, our curriculum emphasizes those skills needed by military dietitians to assume the diverse responsibilities of supporting the U.S. Armed Forces.
Currently we have Army dietetic interns assigned to Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC), Army dietetic interns assigned to Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC), and Air Force dietetic interns assigned to Wilford Hall Medical Center.
