NOTE: We update our site listings regularly. Please contact the Program Director before you submit your internship application for the most up-to-date listing and site descriptions.
Interns are generally assigned to one facility for each of the three main rotations they complete: clinical, food service management, and community. The combination of rotation sites for any one intern varies from year to year. The sites listed below have been used for the last few years. Occasionally, sites will change from year to year and may not be listed here. Each site is coded as a clinical (CL), food service management (MGT), or community nutrition/nutrition education (COMM) site. You are encouraged to “visit” the affiliated site's website by clicking on the link for more information.
All UMass Amherst Dietetic Interns spend two weeks at the VA Medical Center in Northampton to cover quality assurance, improvement competencies, and outpatient counseling.
Most of our affiliated sites are in the Amherst/Springfield area. We do have affiliated sites for rotations in the Berkshires as well as in Central and Eastern Massachusetts. Some rotations (particularly the community ones) may require travel to other sites away from the "home base" of the facility.
