Most DI programs use the Dietetic Internship Centralized Application System (DICAS) online applicant portal, a centralized application process, for the DI match. Applicants are required to create a personal account and are assigned a unique identification number that will be used on all future related communication. Forms required for the DICAS application include: transcript, personal statement, letters of recommendation, resume, DPD Supplemental Form, Declaration of Intent or Verification Statement.
RESOURCES TO ASSIST WITH APPLICATION:
Applicants must participate in the computer matching process, coordinated by D&D Digital Systems. Computer matching is different from the DICAS online applicant portal and each has specific procedures. DI applicants must follow the procedures for both and submit all required components by the DI application deadline.
Computer matching uses rank order lists submitted by applicants and DI programs. As a result, DI applicants who successfully match will be offered one DI position with the ranked program that matches them. More information on the computer match process is obtainable from the D&D Digital website.
