Dietetic Internship Program

Through Be Well Solutions

An Innovative Approach With An Individualized Program

The Be Well Solutions Dietetic Internship (BWS DI) is an 8-month distance program. It promises an innovative curriculum with a corporate wellness and disease prevention concentration. Geared toward individuals who are self-motivated, BWS DI allows them to take a proactive approach and create a personalized experience unique to their career goals. 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.

Spring 2023 Accelerated DI-Only Pathway

BWS DI is offering an Accelerated DI-Only Pathway for Spring 2023 applicants to complete their DI requirements in 2023 without needing a master’s degree. Through this pathway, the program will run from June 2023-December 2023 and is full-time (40 hours/week). Details about this pathway, including application instructions, eligibility, and an example schedule, may be found here.

Hear what recent graduates from our program 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.”

Jennifer Faundez

“BWS DI is the least distance-y distance internship. Despite physical separation, the faculty does an amazing job fostering community and providing support.”

Hilary

“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.”

Anna Whitlow

“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.”

“I cannot imagine completing my DI with any other program! The support from the Be Well staff was incredible. They truly were willing to help me in any way I needed throughout my entire program.”

“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.”
