Rotation Sites

Our distance program offers pre-selected rotation sites throughout the nation. The number of rotation sites grows each year to provide you with a variety of locations to select as your internship home. You will complete your food service management and clinical rotations in one of these Aramark-managed rotation sites. Your community rotation will be completed in the same geographic area as your assigned rotation site.

The Location Selection Sheet allows you to select desired geographic areas where you would like to complete your internship. This document must be attached to your application in DICAS. You can apply to the program with one application to Aramark but rank into D&D all the preselected locations where you are able to complete an internship. One application with multiple locations to rank – a real edge on matching!
