Dietetic Internship Practicum Sites

Interns are placed in a variety of sites which provide experiences across the spectrum of dietetics. Since this program is located in northern Illinois, seventy (70) miles west of Chicago, we are fortunate to be located within driving distance of the western suburbs, and the city of Rockford. Although some sites are located in the DeKalb area and on campus, interns must have a reliable car and be willing to drive to sites that are located off campus.

Interns are placed in NIU Campus Dining Services for the food service management practicum, and at a one community hospital for the Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) practicum. During the community nutrition practicum, interns have the opportunity to work in medical clinics, nursing homes, wellness and health promotion sites, diabetes education and business sites throughout northern Illinois.
