Syracuse University Dietetic Interns and Programs

Registered Dietitian (RD) Mentorship Program

"Syracuse University offered its first nutrition courses in 1917, which means we have been educating future food and nutrition professionals for over 100 years. Over the last century, nutrition education needs have evolved, and so have our nutrition programs. On campus, students benefit from hands-on learning in culinary labs working with experts in nutrition, food policy and public health. Our Nutrition Assessment, Consultation and Education (ACE) Center prepares students with traditional and emerging professional competencies critical to effective nutrition practice. A purposefully outfitted demonstration kitchen supports our integrative nutrition curriculum, which uses food as medicine to support disease treatment. Off campus, dietetic interns prepare for careers in dietetics working with dietitians in various settings."

Our graduate programs include:

  • Master of Arts and Master of Science degrees in Nutrition Science;

  • Certificate of Advanced Study: Dietetic Internship;

  • Certificate of Advanced Study: Integrative and Functional Nutrition (NEW)

For those of you who are interested in becoming an RD, this is a great opportunity to have a mentor and gain experience in the field.

The Registered Dietitian (RD) Mentorship Program is designed to help undergraduate and graduate nutrition students and RDs network with each other and develop professionally. Students will have the opportunity to gain "hands-on" learning experiences as they assist RD's with various projects they identify. In addition to gaining experiential learning, students will receive mentoring and gain insight in the profession. Both the RD and the student will have the opportunity to expand their professional skills.


This program will run from September 2021 to April 2022, and the deadline to sign up was September 9th.

Sign ups for mentees can be found on the website, in the 'Apply 2021-2022' section. For more information, please visit their website or contact with any questions. The RD Mentorship program can also be found on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn by searching "rdmentorship program".
