Morrison Healthcare Dietetic Internship Experience

Welcome to the Morrison Healthcare dietetic internship!

Morrison Healthcare is a significant market employer in the healthcare food service and nutrition industry. As one of the nation’s leading employers of dietitians, we appreciate and recognize the need for skilled and well-trained dietitians. The internship allows the intern to train under dedicated professional dietetic leadership and gain practice experience in various settings with current trends and requirements to be a successful professional.

Morrison Healthcare Dietetic Internship provides an innovative learning experience customized to the intern's location. The goal is to educate and train our future dietitians. Hence, they are excited about establishing and maintaining a lifelong profession, seeking nutrition-related employment in areas where they want to establish a career, and giving back to our profession of competent, enthused professionals.

Our ACEND-accredited internship is structured so that interns can complete the required competencies to meet exam requirements set by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.  Applicants must hold a minimum of a bachelor's degree from a U.S. regionally accredited university or college or foreign equivalent determined by a recognized credentialing agency and a verification statement from an ACEND-approved Didactic Program in Dietetics.
