Program Overview

The Montana Dietetic Internship (MDI) integrates experiences in clinical and community nutrition, and foodservice management with a concentration in sustainable food systems to provide a unique and progressive supervised dietetic practice experience to future registered dietitians. 

Surrounded by mountains and farmland, Montana State University offers the perfect backdrop for dietetic interns interested in food systems and sustainable practices. Students will have the opportunity to work at MSU’s Towne’s Harvest Garden, participate in field trips to local farms/ranches and lead interprofessional projects such as Culinary Medicine sessions with nursing and medical students.

The MDI program prepares future dietitians to be innovative leaders in the implementation of sustainable food practices in all areas of dietetics.

The Montana Dietetic Internship will offer two tracks in 2020/21.
