Dietetic Internship

Boston University has several Dietetic Internship (DI) options available to MS+DI students. All applicants are automatically considered for the Boston University DI track, which means you’ll be matched with one of our BU DI affiliate sites once enrolled in the MS program. The BU DI begins in June, following the successful completion of the MS. The timing and cost of all BU DI affiliates is standardized across sites. See Track A below for additional details.

Alternatively, during the MS+DI preselect application process, you can elect to be considered for one of our standalone DI partnership programs with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Mass General Hospital, or Mount Auburn Hospital. These partnerships allow you to reserve a seat at a standalone DI at the time you are admitted to the MS program. Each standalone DI begins following successful completion of the MS, though the exact timing and cost varies by site. See Track B below for additional details. 


For questions regarding either DI track, please contact Marijane Staniec, Senior Lecturer and Associate Director of Dietetic Internships, at

Please note:

  • Students who are admitted into Sargent College routinely participate in clinical education experiences as a part of the respective program curricula. Most clinical education facilities require criminal background checks to determine students’ eligibility for participation. History of a criminal background may disqualify students from participating in these experiences which are required for successful completion of the degree program.
  • Students may have to provide documentation of medical exams or immunizations before clinical education experiences.
  • Students should anticipate the need to complete clinical experience related requirements, which cost an average of $100 per experience. This estimate does not include transportation and housing costs. Questions regarding requirements for specific sites should be directed to the Clinical Education Services Office (; Sargent room 218).
