Application Process for Program Directors

The application process to supervised practice programs such as Coordinated Programs (CP), Graduate Programs (GPs-also referred to as Future Education Model), and Dietetic Internships (DI) is detailed on this page. This process was updated to ensure an equitable process among all supervised practice programs and sets forth the guidelines under which nutrition and dietetics supervised practice programs and their institutions agree to conduct their annual admission process. This process will begin its pilot year for the 2024-2025 cycle.

Note this page will be updated as additional handouts and resources are available.
