Supervised Sites

The Loyola Dietetic Internship has collaborative partnerships with a variety of health care organizations, community agencies, schools, business and  other non-traditional agencies for the purpose of experiential learning. These sites include medical centers,  hospitals, dialysis centers, outpatient clinics, WIC clinics, senior citizen nutrition programs, school-based health center, residential long-term care facilities, wellness programs, private practices, and not-for-profit organizations. Faculty members design the supervised practice experiences and assignments to provide interns with experiential learning opportunities to meet ACEND requirements, foster professional development of the individual and support the University mission. Examples of supervised practice sites are listed below. Please note that agency availability changes routinely.  The LDI cannot guarantee placement at a particular agency or site.
