Individualized Supervised Practice Pathway
The Nutrition Sciences Department, as an academic leader in nutrition education has implemented the Individualized Supervised Practice Pathway (ISPP) to provide a complete curriculum to train future dietitians. The ISPP was developed to address the extreme shortage of internship positions, and address the needs of the many qualified students who are unable to complete the path to registration. The main purpose of the ISPP is to train students to become qualified dietetics practitioners.
The supervised practice portion of the dietetics training requires a minimum of 1,200 hours divided among clinical nutrition, community nutrition and food service management. Resource materials and competencies for each rotation are provided to the student and preceptors. Competency and learning activity reporting is streamlined to reduce the obligation of the preceptors and increase the responsibility of the student. Students register for one to three graduate credits for each term they are working on the ISPP.
a complete curriculum to train students to become qualified dietetic practitioners.
To qualify for the ISPP, students must have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, a Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) verification statement from an ACEND (Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics)-accredited DPD program and must not have received a match through the formal internship matching process.
