Nutrition Services Medical Education
BIDMC is renowned for its surgical and clinical expertise, state-of-the-art trauma center, and highest quality patient care. Located in the Longwood Medical Area, BIDMC is a teaching hospital for Harvard Medical School. Locally BIDMC is known as the "Harvard with a Heart."
The BIDMC Dietetic Internship is a 10-month program emphasizing nutrition therapy. The program provides more than 1200 supervised hours in Clinical Nutrition, Foodservice Systems Management, and Community Nutrition. Interns received in-depth training in outpatient counseling, critical care, and enteral and parenteral nutrition support. Interns also participate in weekly classes, group projects, and academic lectures to foster learning and enrich the internship experience.
We believe we have the happiest interns in Boston. The feedback they give us year after year confirms the great experience the internship provides. They appreciate the team atmosphere, the weekly class days which give them an opportunity to connect and bond with classmates, the diverse patient population, and our dedicated preceptors.
The close proximity to other outstanding medical and research facilities in the Longwood Medical area is a huge benefit as well. And, all interns enjoy the close proximity to historical Fenway Park and BIDMC's long-standing status as the official hospital of the Boston Red Sox!
