he MS program will prepare you to critically evaluate and implement the results of current research, solve problems, and communicate effectively. You’ll study with faculty involved in research, education, administration, professional practice, communication, and consulting. As part of your program, you will develop a research proposal and complete an individually designed practicum. Practicum sites have included an eating disorders clinic, a nutrition support team at a large urban hospital, a private practice focused on nutrition for athletes, a clinical research center at a large teaching hospital, an outpatient cardiovascular clinic at a suburban teaching hospital, and the offices of a nationally distributed nutrition newsletter. The MS program must be completed before entry into the Dietetic Internship (DI), a six-credit, 29-week, full-time course beginning in June or January following completion of the MS program. The DI has clinical sites at major teaching and community hospitals in the greater Boston and surrounding areas. The clinical sites provide excellent opportunities for you to observe and participate in a wide variety of specialties such as nutrition support, pediatrics, oncology, nephrology, cardiology, diabetes, surgical care, outpatient counseling, food service, and management. The six-credit DI requires tuition payment. You must also pay a nonrefundable $1,000 fee to your internship site during the first two weeks of the DI. A car may be necessary to get to the DI site, as some sites are approximately 40 miles from Boston.
