Individualized Supervised Practice Pathways (ISPP)
Iowa State University has been approved by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) to participate in the Individualized Supervised Practice Pathways (ISPP).
The ISU Dietetic Internship determines the number of positions available following the DICAS match.
ACEND policies for Individualized Supervised Practice Pathways allow the following individuals to apply:
Preference for ISPP is given to applicants who have applied to the ISU Dietetics Internship and were not matched.
The ISU Dietetic Internship will contact applicants who ranked favorably during the review process for potential ISPP. If you are being considered for an ISPP the dietetics internship will contact you within 3 weeks of the original match date.
Individuals who did not match in match cycles that occurred prior to the beginning of the ISPP option must apply via DICAS and not match in order to be eligible.
The ISU Dietetics Internship will provide the ISPP opportunity to those possessing doctoral degrees (DPD verification statement not required.)
Applicants must provide a transcript showing a PhD degree and must provide preceptor and facility information including facility and preceptor forms and affiliation agreements.
Applications will be reviewed by Program Director and review committee. You may be contacted for a phone interview.
If the PhD applicant does not have a DPD verification statement, knowledge will be assessed to determine which, if any, DPD Foundation Knowledge Learning needs to be completed prior to start of the workshop.
If accepted to the “Professional Training in Dietetics Program”, total amount of supervised practice hours will be determined by the Program Director. You will be required to complete a Pre-MNT Workshop either on-site or via distance education.
Total cost for this pathway is $75 application fee plus minimum $5325- $8000 workshop and processing costs. Once your materials are reviewed and accepted, you will receive a link to register for this workshop via email. Payment in full via credit card is due upon registration.
Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in the ISPP and meet the eligibility requirements.
