This internship allows students to gain hands on experience working in collegiate athletics. Students interact with an interdisciplinary team including registered dietitians, coaches, trainers, physicians and others to develop and enhance nutrition-related knowledge and skills. They also gain invaluable experience and exposure to the day-to-day duties of a collegiate sports dietitian. Students participate in a weekly 50-minute discussion that is held by two sports nutrition dietitians, and complete 9 hours per week hands on activities at Gossett Football Team House, Xfinity Center, and Varsity Team House.
