Moore Family Center Food Coach

Posts on the Moore Family Center Food Coach are written by interns in the Dietetic Internship at Oregon State University (OSUDI). The OSUDI is a non-credit, non-degree, post-baccalaureate program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). Interns will be eligible to take the national exam to become Registered Dietitians/Nutritionists at the conclusion of the program.

OSUDI consists of a 9.5 month, full-time supervised practice program commencing every September and running through June.

This internship focuses on long-term senior nutrition care, and community nutrition, but also features experiences in traditional venues (i.e. food service, management and community). Comprised of numerous rotations in different healthcare settings under the supervision of 11+ qualified preceptors, this internship prides itself on its diversity.
