12-03-2019

Southern Regional announces that it will host its annual Dietetic Internship Open House on Friday, January 17, at 2 p.m. in the Food and Nutrition Offices. The hospital’s Dietetic Internship Program offers students striving to become Registered Dietitians the opportunity to reach their mandated clinical rotations.

The program runs approximately 9 1/2 months – from August 2020 to completion in late May to early June 2021. Students enrolled in the program are expected to work 36 hours per week. Mondays are spent in classes with interns from Emory University Hospital and Georgia State University, with Tuesday through Friday dedicated to hands-on rotation experiences.

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 Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics registration 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.
