12-18-2018

Southern Regional Medical Center continues its commitment to healthcare and education through it’s ongoing Dietetic Internship Program. The hospital is hosting its annual Dietetic Internship Open House on Friday, January 18, at 2 p.m. in the Food and Nutrition Offices.

The Dietetic Internship Program offers students striving to become Registered Dietitians the opportunity to complete their mandated clinical rotations. The program runs approximately 9 1/2 months; beginning in August 2019 and finishing late May to early June 2020. Students enrolled in the program are expected to work 36 hours per week. Mondays are spent in classes with interns from Emory University and Georgia State University, with Tuesday through Friday dedicated to hands-on rotation experiences.

In order to qualify for graduation from the program, interns are required to complete all the weeks of the program, successfully achieve all Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND®) competencies, pass all rotations, and complete all assignments. Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible to take the Commission of Dietetic Registration (CDR) exam for dietitians and begin working in entry-level dietetics positions.

Students who are interested in attending the Dietetic Internship Open House must RSVP to: Lamura Poore, MS, RDN, LD, at LPoore1@primehealthcare.com or by calling 770-991-8033.
