Distance with a Difference

Aramark Distance Dietetic Internship Program

The 35-week Aramark Distance Dietetic Internship exposes dietetic interns to emerging trends in dietetics throughout all rotations. The internship allows interns to develop an evidence-based clinical practice, implement innovative retail programs during management, and counsel diverse groups during the community rotation. Rotation sites and preceptors are selected for interns in geographical locations across the country. Career opportunities may include an option to participate in an online master’s degree program, Aramark’s Accelerate to Leadership (A2L) management program, or as a clinical dietitian. Program outcomes are available upon request.

Admission Criteria and Program Expenses

Planning for a Dietetic Internship includes understanding the program’s core admission requirements and expenses. Applicants must meet all admission requirements to be eligible for the program. Watch this video to learn more about core admission requirements and expenses including the program fee.

Location Selection

The Aramark Distance program continues to expand the number of locations available for students to select as an internship home. Rotation sites and preceptors are selected for the interns in geographical locations across the country. A Pinterest board has been developed to provide a description of each hospital. The Location Selection Sheet allows students to select desired geographic areas. This document must be attached to all applications in DICAS. Students apply to the program with one application to Aramark, but rank into D&D all the preselected hospital locations where they are able to complete a internship. One application with multiple locations to rank – a real edge on matching!
