The Texas A&M University (TAMU) Dietetic Internship (DI) Program is an ACEND accredited dietetic internship program that has welcomed interns since 1982. The TAMU DI program has an emphasis in clinical dietetics and currently offers two options for the applicant to choose from: the Master’s in Clinical Nutrition (MCN) option and the Non-Degree DI option.
We no longer accept applications for the Graduate-DI option; this option is being replaced by the MCN program. Additionally, the Spring 2022 Dietetic Internship Match will be the last cohort of applications to the Non-Degree DI option. This last cohort will start the supervised practice in August 2022 and graduate in May 2023.
The current 1-year pass rate for the RDN exam for the Texas A&M DI Program is 100%, with over 80% of the graduates of the program passing the RDN exam on the first try. Graduates of the Texas A&M Dietetic Internship Program are working in a variety of practice settings, including: clinical dietetics, clinical management, treatment for eating disorders, school nutrition programs, and university wellness.
