									                                       Guide for Dietetic Internship Application


Candidates who wish to apply for a dietetic internship must be graduates of a Dietitians of Canada (DC) accredited
undergraduate program or have been assessed for academic equivalency to meet accredited program standards.
Applicants must also be Canadian citizens, landed immigrants, or international students at the time of application.
International students are only eligible to apply in the year of their university graduation (See
http://cic.gc.ca/english/study/work-postgrad.asp under "Working After Graduation" for further information).

I.   Applicants Needing Upgrading
     If you graduated from a DC accredited program, and it has been more than 3 years since you graduated, you must
     first obtain an academic assessment from DC or from a DC accredited undergraduate program. For example, a
     graduate of May 2009 who applies in February 2012, does not require an assessment for upgrading purposes.
     However, if that graduate applies in February 2013, an assessment for upgrading will be required. To obtain a DC
     assessment, please refer to the DC website at:
     http://www.dietitians.ca/Downloadable-Content/Public/Cdn_assessment_info_sheet.aspx . Your DC assessment
     must be submitted to the DC office no later than November 15, 2011.

II. Applicants from Canadian Degree Programs Not Accredited by DC
    If you completed a Canadian degree program that was not accredited by DC, you must contact a DC accredited
    undergraduate program to inquire about the process required to meet academic equivalency to apply for dietetic

III. Applicants from Non-Canadian Degree Programs
     If you completed a non-Canadian degree program, and have been assessed by a Provincial Dietetic Regulatory
     Body as requiring a dietetic internship, you must be assessed for academic equivalency to apply for a dietetic
     internship. In order to be eligible for the 2012 internship match, your request for a DC assessment must be
     submitted to the DC office no later than November 15, 2011. To obtain a DC assessment, please refer to the DC
     website at http://www.dietitians.ca/Downloadable-Content/Public/outofcountry_assessment_info_sheet.aspx

     Rather than applying for internship, you may be eligible to complete a program specifically developed to assist
     Internationally Educated dietitians to meet registration requirements. For information on these programs refer to
     the DC website at: http://www.dietitians.ca/Career/Internationally-Educated-Dietitians.aspx
     Before undertaking one of these programs, you should check with the Provincial Dietetic Regulatory Body to
     ensure that the program is acceptable to them.

If you have been assessed by DC, your assessment letter specified any courses you must complete to be eligible to
apply for an internship position. Before you can apply for internship, you must provide written confirmation that the
academic requirements specified in your DC assessment have been or will be met. Any courses in progress must be
completed before the internship program begins. The confirmation process is described on pg. 3-4 and all documents
must be submitted to the DC office no later than January 4, 2012 in order to have your Confirmation of Completion of
Academic Program forms signed. These forms must be included in each of your internship application packages.


Application packages are available by mid-October from your university course director or can be downloaded from
Dietitians of Canada website:
The application package contains the forms necessary to make application and a Summary Listing of Dietetic
Internship Programs. Obtain program brochures from your university program director or consult the DC website at

for condensed versions of the information.

You may apply to 3 programs. Be sure to apply only to those programs from which you would accept an internship
position. Completed applications must reach the directors of each dietetic internship program no later than February
1, 2012. It is advised that you send your application packages to the internship programs well in advance of the
deadline. Upon receiving your application package, the director will confirm with you if your application is
complete or whether information is missing. It is your responsibility to ensure that any missing documentation
is received by director no later than February 1, 2012. You must also register in the DC web-based computer
system prior to February 1, 2012 in order to be included in the internship selection (see page 5 for detailed


DC uses a web-based computer system for internship selection. This computerized selection process allows student
applicants to enter the 3 internship programs to which they have applied, and permits dietetic internship programs to
enter a listing of ranked applicants whom they will accept. The system then matches the student and program lists, and
makes offers to successful applicants up to the number of positions available. Some students will receive more than
one internship offer, from which they must choose, resulting in program openings. The selection process then
continues to move down the program’s list of ranked applicants, notifying successful applicants until all positions have
been filled. For this reason, it is important for applicants to monitor their emails on an ongoing basis.

Applicants enter their internship selections via a web-link and receive notification of position acceptance by email. To
apply for internship selection, an applicant must pay an Internship Selection fee. This fee allows the student to access
the computer system to input their internship program choices. The deadline for application to this selection process is
February 1, 2012.

It is your responsibility to submit each of the following items to your 3 internship program choices, with the exception
of those items asterisked* and noted below.
 Personal letter
 Résumé
 Transcript of Marks
 Dietetic Internship: Applicant’s Contact Information Sheet
 Confirmation of Completion of Academic Program (Note: If you had a DC assessment, this form must first be
     signed by DC’s Professional Affairs designate. A copy of your signed confirmation form must then be sent to each
     internship program. Note: some internship directors may also request verification of courses in progress. A copy of
     the assessment letter must also accompany your application).
 Confidential Report on Dietetic Internship Application
 Dietetic Internship Acceptance Form (Only if accepted)*
 Any other material requested on the Internship Brochure for the individual program


Personal Letter
Your reasons for selecting the internship program should be included in this letter to each director. Check the
individual internship brochures for requirements that are specific to each program.

Your résumé should include your education, paid and volunteer employment experience, and any relevant
extracurricular activities.
Transcript of Marks
Your document must be an official transcript bearing the university’s seal or a notarized copy. For students in DC
accredited degree programs, transcripts must include marks for all courses completed by the end of the first semester
of the current academic year. For students assessed by DC, transcripts must include marks for all courses completed at
the time of application. Be sure to order your transcript(s) early as it may take a few weeks for processing by the
university. When you graduate, you must also forward an official transcript of your marks to the internship program in
which you are enrolled.

Dietetic Internship Applicant’s Contact Information Sheet
This contact sheet will be an important reference for the internship director. Make sure it includes your present and
permanent contact information. If any of the information changes, notify the director. A copy must be included in
each internship application package. You will need an extra copy of this form if you need your Confirmation of
Completion of Academic Program form signed by DC’s Professional Affairs designate.

   office. You must include a self-addressed, prepaid Canada Post Xpresspost or a Priority Courier sized envelope to

Confidential Report on Dietetic Internship Application

You must provide 3 references for each internship program you apply to. Your 3 referees must complete the
Confidential Report on Dietetic Internship Application. Include 1 copy of this report from each of your 3 referees in
each application package.

Be sure to choose your referees carefully. Referees should know you well enough to judge your performance in most,
if not all, of the areas specified on the report form. It is preferred that at least one referee be a DC member. Others
referees should include those you know you in a professional, student, or business capacity, for example, a university
faculty member, a previous or current employer, and a supervisor of a volunteer work experience. Referees must be
impartial. While the use of employers who are relatives is not recommended, instruct them to fully disclose their
relationship to you on their referee form.

Ask your referees to return each of their 3 completed forms to you in sealed envelopes that carry their signature across
the flap. Photocopies of the confidential report will only be accepted if the signature is original.

Note: The information in the Confidential Reports is for the use of the internship program only and cannot be
released to the applicant or any other party at any time, including after the completion of the application

Dietetic Internship Acceptance Form
DC sends you notification if you have been accepted into an internship program. Once you have entered the computer
system to accept the position, you must return this form to the director immediately – by mail or fax. If you fax the
form, you must also mail the copy to the internship program. If you should subsequently decline a position, you must
send written notification of your decision to the director as soon as possible.

DC also notifies each university program coordinator of applicants from their academic programs who were
successful and unsuccessful in the internship application process. DC will assume an applicant’s consent to the
release of this information unless non-disclosure is requested from Jenna Smith at jenna.smith@dietitians.ca no
later than April 1, 2012.

Please note: This package includes a copy of each form required for Internship Application , as well as a list of
available internship program positions. Please ensure that each of your internship applications contain the following
forms, properly completed:

        Dietetic Internship Applicant’s Contact Information Sheet - 1 copy
        Confirmation of Completion of Academic Program – 1 copy
        Confidential Report on Dietetic Internship Application – 3 copies, one from each referee

Important: It is recommended that you obtain an additional copy of your transcripts, Confirmation of Completion of
Academic Program form, and referee forms in the event that there is a Second Process Round (see page 6).
Internship selection is completed through a computerized process managed by DC. In addition to entering program
choices into this computer system, applicants must send their completed packages directly to the internship programs.
DC will notify applicants of the results of the internship selection process by email only.

Application for Internship Selection:
 Registration information for payment and access for the Internship Selection process will be available on January
   4, 2012 at: www.dietitians.ca/Internshipmatch Applicants must pay the fee of $141.25 including HST. Payment
   must be by credit card or PayPal (no other form of payment is accepted).
 Once the payment has been processed, applicants will be emailed information about how to enter the system using
   their email address as their USERNAME. A DC PASSWORD will be provided.
 An instruction page is provided once an applicant enters the system. Applicants are required to complete a
   personal profile of contact information and to select, from a drop down menu, the 3 internship programs they
   have/will apply to. The 3 choices are equal and are not ranked according to preference (i.e. first, second, third).
   Please note: Payment must be processed and applicants must enter their data into the system no later than
   February 1, 2012 to be eligible to apply for the internship selection. Applicants can make changes to their
   personal profile at any time but are not permitted to change their internship selections after the February 1,
   2012 application deadline. Failure to register in the computer system or to enter your program choices in the
   system prior to the deadline will disqualify you from the computer selection process even though you have
   submitted your applications to the internship programs.

Selection Process- First Process Round:
 Prior to the start of the First Process Round, Internship Programs will enter a list of all applicants whom they are
    willing to accept in the numeric order of choice (i.e. #1 is first choice). This list is generated from those applicants
    who have applied to their program, have created a profile, and have entered their program choices in the system.
 In the First Selection Round of the First Process Round, internship program selection choices are only considered
    down to the total number of positions that the program has available.
 The First Selection Round will begin on March 12, 2012.
 An email notifies all applicants, whether successful or unsuccessful, of the results of the selection process. Some
    successful applicants will receive more than one offer.
 Successful applicants must enter the system to accept a position by 5:00 p.m. March 13, 2012. If a successful
    applicant does not enter the system within the deadline period, they are disqualified from this selection process but
    may be offered a position in a subsequent Selection Round. An applicant who declines a position may also be
    offered a position in a subsequent Selection Round . An applicant who is offered a position but decides not to
    accept an internship this year, has the option of declining all positions offered in this and subsequent rounds.
 For programs that do not fill all of their available positions in the First Selection Round, subsequent selection
    processes will occur by moving down the list of applicants still available on that program’s ranking form. Each
    subsequent selection will follow within approximately 2 days of the previous notification. Offers will be sent by
    email to the next applicant on the program list. Successful applicants will be given a response deadline
    (approximately 2 days). Be sure to monitor your emails on an ongoing basis over the internship application
 The selection process for the First Process Round will continue until all programs have filled their available
    positions. If a program runs out of available applicants, a Second Selection Round may be required.
    Please note: After successful applicants accept a position through the computer selection process, they must
    send the Dietetic Internship Acceptance Form directly to the internship program within 48 hours of

Selection Process- Second Process Round:
 If a Second Process Round is required, all unsuccessful applicants will receive an email to inform them of the
    application process and the deadline for application. Only applicants from the First Process Round are eligible to
    apply, and an application can only be made to one program. Those who have accepted an internship position in the
    First Process Round are not eligible to apply for the Second Process Round.
 An application package for the Second Process Round will be made available for download on the DC website.
    The package will contain available internship program openings and the dates for the Second Process Round
 Applicants apply directly to the Dietetic Internship Program of their choice. All parts of the application package
    must be supplied by the applicant directly to their Second Process Round program choice. No documents will be
    transferred from a First Round program to a Second Round program.
 Once applicants have submitted their internship package to the program, they must go into the internship selection
    program and enter the program they have applied for. There is no additional charge for the Second Process Round
 Successful applicants will be informed by email of the program that has selected them. They must then enter the
    computer system to verify acceptance of the program, by the date specified in the email. Please note: The
    applicant must send the Dietetic Internship Acceptance Form directly to the internship program within 48
    hours of acceptance.

Completion of Annual Internship Selection:
 Once all internship positions are filled, an email will be sent to the remaining unsuccessful applicants informing
   them that the internship selection for 2012 has been completed.
