Dietetic Internship Program
Through Be Well Solutions
Helping RD2Be Become Leader RDNs Since 2017
The Be Well Solutions Dietetic Internship (BWS DI) is a full-time distance program promising an innovative curriculum with a corporate wellness and disease prevention concentration. BWS DI is geared toward self-motivated individuals, allowing them to take a proactive approach and create a personalized experience unique to their career goals. Additionally, BWS DI accepts prior assessed learning, offers a leadership scholarship, and prioritizes community for their interns and alumni network.
Interns may select from two program pathways: DI-only or MS/DI. The DI-only pathway is for interns who already have a master’s degree, are in the process of completing one, or choose to apply to a master’s program that is not a BWS DI partner. The MS/DI pathway is for interns who will complete their master’s degree at the same time as their internship. BWS DI has several master’s program partners that interns may choose from. Each program has its own concentration and curriculum, and we are proud to have partners that tailor to a variety of interests.
Be Well Solutions is a physician-owned, comprehensive wellness company that specializes in full-service wellness including biometric screenings, health risk assessments, wellness programming and intervention, compliance tracking, and aggregate reporting.

Hear what recent BWS DI graduates have to say!
“BWS DI made my entire internship experience smooth and remarkable. When applying to internships, good communication was not something I took into consideration. However, once the internship began, I realized the phenomenal communication from my BWS DI advisor was extremely important for my internship success. Each assignment provided valuable information, the monthly conference meetings gave me a great sense of community with my fellow interns, and the internship focus in wellness promotion was unique and exactly what I was looking for to help me with my career goals. BWS DI was my first choice and I am extremely grateful to have been matched with such a wonderful organization.”
“BWS DI is the least distance-y distance internship. Despite physical separation, the faculty does an amazing job fostering community and providing support.”
“I knew when applying to dietetic internship that I wanted a distance program, but was a little nervous about what that would look like. I was so impressed with the support the interns receive after an interview with the staff, that I placed BWS DI to be my first match. The internship has exceeded y expectations with their level of support and commitment to developing interns into successful dietitians. Through my internship, I not only gained the experiences most interns receive in a traditional experience, but also learned so much about networking and communicating virtually that will benefit me in the future.”
“Be Well Solutions happens to be a distance internship, but I identify it as a program for self-starting individuals to become hands on in the field of their interest. The support of the faculty makes you feel a part of a team and the experience gives you the confidence to change the world without the fear of failure.”
“Being a dietetic intern with Be Well Solutions has been an incredible experience. I never felt adrift during my entire internship experience, and this is due to the amazing BWS faculty. Applying to a distance dietetic internship was daunting during the application process, but I am so happy that I matched with Be Well Solutions because they are one of the best!”
“BWS DI not only provides you with all the tools you need to successfully complete your internship and RD exam, but they are also an incredibly genuine team. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The faculty truly care about their students and their future in the nutrition field. I would be as confident in my abilities as a nutrition educator if it weren’t for this program.”
“Honestly, I feel so proud that I completed my internship with BWS. When people ask me where I did my DI, I say “BWS” with confidence because I knew that I was supported by smart, strong, and dedicated staff.”
“Be Well Solutions was the best internship I could have ever matched with.”

“Since the very beginning after matching with the BWSDI, I knew that this program was going to be a great fit. For someone who really appreciated the freedom in making my own connections and creating my own rotation schedule, I was excited to have the flexibility and independence to begin my career as a dietitian. Once the program started, it soon became very clear how well supported I would be throughout my rotations, despite my focus on independence. I could not have asked for a better network of mentors and fellow interns (all over the U.S!) that helped teach me and guide me as I enter my career.”
“The staff at Be Well Solutions are fantastic and very dedicated to your success. Even though they are hundreds of miles away, you always feel like they are always available and have your best interests at heart and want you to succeed. They are a very flexible and excellent resource.”
“The BWS DI provides all the rigor to prepare you to begin your career in nutrition and dietetics combined with support and resources to ensure you are successful. A very organized, well run program!”
