WHAT IS A DIETITIAN?
A registered dietitian is a health professional that specializes in medical nutrition therapy. They are required to receive a Bachelors degree in dietetics, and then complete a minimum 1,200 hour dietetic internship. After the minimum requirements are met, they are eligible to sit for the Registered Dietitian exam, and become registered. Licensure is required in most states and an application for state licensure will be completed after passing the registration exam. Continuing education is required over a 5 year period, every 5 years while the dietitian is practicing.
