Dietetic Internship

About our program

Louisiana Tech provides a hometown feel with extraordinary experiences. Our internship is a cost-effective program both academically and geographically. Online and hybrid courses during the internship allow students to earn a Master’s degree while in the program. We also accept students who have already earned advanced degrees or graduate credits. Louisiana Tech offers generous scholarship support opportunities and interns may also receive Federal Student Aid.

All Dietetic Interns are required to abide by the policies of each healthcare facility they are assigned to for rotations, including vaccination requirements. Interns who do not meet the requirements of a healthcare facility, including COVID-19 vaccination status, are not guaranteed placement in that facility or an alternative facility, which will impede completion of the program.
