What to Expect in the Nutrition Coordinated Program
Thinking about joining our program? Here's what you can expect
The mission of the UIC coordinated program is to prepare graduates for entry-level positions as dietitians in a variety of health care settings including clinical, community, research, business and food service.
Goals and objectives of the coordinated program can be found here. Program data regarding goals and objectives of our program and RD exam pass results are available upon request from the program director.
The coordinated program is two semesters longer than the nutrition science/DPD track because it includes a clinical component.
The UIC coordinated program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
