Northern Ontario Dietetic Internship Program

About Our Program

The Northern Ontario Dietetic Internship Program (NODIP) is administered by the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM), in collaboration with multiple preceptors, communities, and facilities throughout Northern Ontario. NODIP is nationally accredited, and thus has been designed to develop the competencies required of an entry-level dietitian.

NOSM’s social accountability mandate and a commitment to community engaged and distributed learning is the foundation of NODIP. Learn more about NOSM.

NODIP provides practical experience for students to obtain the Integrated Competencies for Dietetic Education and Practice. The internship is a comprehensive 46-week program in which students are exposed to nutrition care, population and public health, and management roles in dietetics.

NODIP offers a wide range of challenging learning experiences in a variety of practice settings including:

  • Regional Hospitals
  • Family Health Teams
  • Public Health Units
  • Community Health Centres
  • Long-Term Care Facilities
  • Small Rural Hospitals
  • Aboriginal Communities
  • Francophone Communities

This internship will help you develop the unique skills required to meet the growing demand for health professionals in Northern and rural communities.
