The mission of the Didactic Program in Dietetics at Brigham Young University is to develop informed and productive citizens of the family, community, and nation who are prepared to perform effectively in supervised practice and to make meaningful contributions to the dietetics profession.

About

The Didactic Program in Dietetics begins with approximately four semesters of pre-professional study, which include University general education requirements and specific Program requirement. Students may then apply for acceptance into the professional sequence, the final two years of study. Professional Sequence coursework includes courses in clinical and community nutrition and foodservice management as well as teaching and research methods in dietetics.

Through the Didactic Program in Dietetics, the student meets all Foundation Knowledge and Skills established by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) for progression to a Dietetic Internship. Successful completion of Program major requirements and University requirements for graduation will qualify students to receive a Verification Statement. The Verification Statement is required for entrance into a Dietetic Internship.

During the student's final semester, application is made for a Dietetic Internship (typically 9-12 months in length; located throughout the US), completion of which is required to qualify for the national examination for registered dietitian status.
