“Be Well Solutions Dietetic Internship far exceeded any and all expectations I might have had about the program. If you are looking for a program that cultivates relationships, critical thinking skills, while providing continued support, then this is the perfect fit. I will continue to recommend this program to future students!”

“I highly recommend this program to future dietetic interns! The flexibility in scheduling your own rotations is great, and the faculty is supportive.” – Paige Paswaters, Fall 2018

“I was not in a position with my physical location, financial status, or time to apply to a university or larger internship. I am married, moving with my military husband, and looking to finish up my internship to be a dietitian. Be Well is not only a distance program, but it is reasonably priced and efficient! The dietitians that created the program care so much about the interns and are looking to prepare you for becoming a competent, working dietitian in the most realistic and practical ways. None of the work was unnecessary, it all had a purpose to develop a particular area of knowledge and experience. The distance was not at all an obstacle for learning because of the effort the advisors put in. 10 out of 10 recommend!” Kelsie Bednarz

“I loved the creativity of this internship program. Being able to create a program with rotation sites that fit my areas of interest was very important to me. The flexibility of a distance program was ideal considering I did not want to move from my current residence. The diversity in being able to network with dietitians from multiple sites during our rotations was an experience I would not have received in a traditional program. I am so blessed to have been a part of a dietetic internship program with caring faculty and supportive fellow interns. The relationships and experiences in this program will always be with me. Thank you for a great internship experience.” BWS DI Graduate Amber Williams, MSA

“I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this program. BWS DI is a distance program that never felt distant. The faculty was always available to assist when needed and truly cared about our success. I recommend this program to anyone who prefers a small class size and appreciates close community.” – Leah Forristall, Fall 2018 Class

“I’m so incredibly honored and blessed to be a part of the BWS family. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn, have a well rounded dietetic internship with awesome preceptors, grow in the profession, expand my network, meet incredible people from all around the world in my cohort, and equipping me with the resources necessary to be a great future dietitian.” Marquitta Foster

“This internship was an incredible experience. The faculty advisors are truly knowledgeable in their fields, I felt very supported the entire time despite being in a distance program, and I really enjoyed the flexibility of finding rotations that I was actually interested in as a future dietitian. I would highly recommend this internship for anyone who is looking for a more tailored experience.” – Anabelle Harari 

“A distance internship can be an overwhelming endeavor. The faculty at BWSDI was beyond supportive and helped me to feel like I was not alone in this journey every step of the way. BWS DI truly cares about cultivating an environment where interns have the opportunity to flourish in a flexible, unique setting.” Maddy McDonough

“Be Well Solutions DI is an incredible internship. I was so blessed to be able to complete it in my home state of Alaska and be guided through this amazing experience by an upstanding advisor and BWS faculty.” – Shelby Dykstra

“At first I was a little worried about doing a distance program because of everything I heard in undergrad, but the faculty at BWS DI were always positive, supportive, and willing to help. Considering that everyone had very different rotations, they did a great job in providing us with resources to help us succeed. Overall, I felt like they truly cared about me and making sure I succeeded.”
