Program Mission and Philosophy
The mission of the Columbia University Teachers College Dietetic Internship Program (DI) is to provide students with a high quality educational and supervised practice experience that will prepare them as competent and effective dietetic practitioners for entry-level positions in general dietetics. The philosophy of the DI Program is to integrate knowledge and critical thinking skills with service. The focus on service affords the DI Program an opportunity to emphasize professional practice that facilitates modification of personal food choices, food access and food systems.
