The results are in! 80% of UC Davis’ Spring 2019 dietetic internship applicants were accepted to internship programs. This translates to 52 UC Davis graduates beginning their supervised practice this fall. This rate far exceeds the national match rate of 61%. Nearly a third of these graduates (31%, which is 16 students) will attend internships combined with a master’s degree. Additionally, 10 clinical nutrition graduates will pursue master’s degrees this fall, two will enter PhD programs, and one will enter medical school.
Our outstanding acceptance rates to dietetic internships as well as to graduate and professional schools speaks to the exceptional education delivered by the faculty in our department and our bright and dedicated students. We celebrate everyone’s success!
