WWDI Prospective Interns
One of the most exciting and innovative DI programs in the US!
“Wellness Workdays Dietetic Internship program was a diverse and inspirational program that has prepared me for my successful future as an RD!”
~ Jaclyn Padovano, RDN, Class of 2015
The WWDI may be completed full-time (8 months, 40 hours per week) or part-time (11months, 25 hours per week). The WWDI has been granted Full Accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).
This is a distance program. To learn more about what a distance program is, view the webinar below from Program Director, Debra Wein.
To graduate, the intern must complete the minimum 1000 (new!) supervised practice hours, all didactic hours, assignments, rotation evaluations, practice exams and complete an exit interview at program completion. Interns have up to 150% of the time allotted to complete these requirements, which is a total of 10 months for full-time, and 15 months for part-time.
The intern will receive a Verification Statement following successful completion of the dietetic internship. Their name will then be submitted to the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) by the WWDI Program Director as evidence of eligibility to sit for the (RD) credentialing exam.
Go to the CDR website for more information on dietetic internships.
