Combined Dietetic Internship & Masters Programs
The Combined Dietetic Internship/Masters degree programs allow students to complete the Dietetic Internship Program and a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition Degree simultaneously. The Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition is a thesis-based degree.
The goal of the combined DI/MS Program is to train dietetic professionals in the methods, implementation and interpretation of nutrition science, and to apply and advance the field of nutrition through research, clinical, management or community areas of practice.
To be eligible for the Combined DI/Masters option, applicants must meet the requirements for both the Dietetic Internship and the OHSU Graduate School.
The Combined DI/MS students complete their supervised practice at the Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center - Portland (VAMC) and at the Oregon Health & Science University Hospital & Clinics on the main OHSU campus.
Students in the DI/MS program complete the internship concurrently with Masters coursework and research. Dietetic Internship courses and supervised practice are completed during the first 4 quarters while the masters course work is completed throughout the 2 year program. The Combined DI/Masters Program may be completed in 2 years depending on the thesis project completion.Some students complete the program in 1 or 2 additional quarters or 2.5 years.
Applicants to the Combined DI/MS Program please note: **New this year**: The Combined Dietetic Internship & Masters Degree Program will use the online centralized internship application, DICAS, which may be accessed at https://portal.dicas.org (email DICASinfo@DICAS.org)
In addition, applicants must participate in computer matching through D&D Digital, available at http://www.dnddigital.com
We will select combined DI/MS students through the national matching system. Students matched with our program will be notified in April 2013.
