Note: All applicants to the MPH in Nutrition and Dietetics concentration that are also participating in a dietetic internship match must submit both applications by the deadline for online computer matching (see dnddigital.com). Incomplete applications or those received after that time will not be considered for the integrated MPH program.
The MPH in Public Health with a Concentration in Nutrition and Dietetics is an on-line program, offered by the Department of Community and Family Health. The University of South Florida (USF) Dietetic Internship is an integrated dietetic internship and MPH program. This concentration examines medical nutrition therapy, nutrition education, community practice and program evaluation, management and leadership, ethical standards and practice, and theoretical frameworks and models. Students who complete the concentration in Nutrition and Dietetics, in conjunction with an ACEND accredited dietetic internship and successfully pass the registration exam for dietitians, can practice as a registered dietitian nutritionist in multiple areas of population health.
