Sodexo Southcoast Dietetic Internship

The Sodexo Southcoast Dietetic Internship program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). Our program has the dual advantages of being based out of a community hospital group — Southcoast Health — and being backed by the resources of a major food service management company (Sodexo).

Sodexo has contracted with Southcoast sites for more than 30 years, working closely with our staff to provide excellence in foodservice management.

Our dietetic program was established in 1989 and currently accepts 10 interns per year. We participate in the spring match through DICAS and D & D Digital. Only those individuals who have completed an ACEND accredited DPD program in nutrition and dietetics, and hold a verification statement, are eligible to apply to our program.

In addition to the Southcoast campus, Sodexo has four other campuses, including a distance learning option. Learn more about our program or email
