|Home Dietetic Internship Program General Information|
The Mount Auburn Hospital dietetic internship program begins in September. Interns are on duty at least eight hours a day, five days a week, including some weekends and holidays. Scheduled hours vary depending upon the rotation. Interns may be expected to remain on duty after hours because of the nature of the work. In addition, interns should plan to spend several hours each week on library work, reading and assignments. Each intern is allowed two weeks vacation, eight holidays and eight sick days. Any special requests for schedule adjustments must be discussed when applying to the program. While on duty at the hospital and hospital affiliates, interns are required to wear white lab coats. Tailored professional clothing is required during any other activities where interns represent Mount Auburn Hospital.
A non-refundable fee of $60.00 must accompany the application. Tuition is currently $1200.00 and is required at the time of acceptance into the program. Expenses incurred for housing, meals, books, projects, travel and meetings are paid by the interns. Interns assume responsibility for liability and health insurance. Interns also assume liability for their safety in travel to or from assignments and affiliations. Mount Auburn Hospital does not offer financial aid, however, the internship is cause for deferment of student loans. Interns receive a weekly stipend and meals at Mount Auburn Hospital.
The applicant must have a baccalaureate degree in dietetics, food management or related field from an accredited college or university. The degree must include the minimum academic requirements of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
