NODIP Celebrates 11th GraduationPosted on July 31, 2018
Congratulations to our newest class of Registered Dietitians!
On Thursday, July 26, 12 learners from NOSM’s Northern Ontario Dietetic Internship Program (NODIP) celebrated their graduation. The ceremony was held in two locations: the Northern Ontario School of Medicine at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, and NOSM at Laurentian University in Sudbury. The Northern Ontario Dietetic Internship Program is a unique internship designed to give learners a wide variety of opportunities. NODIP offers experience in different types of practice settings including large and small hospitals, public health units, Family Health Teams, and community health centres. Placements take place in rural, Indigenous, and Francophone communities.
With the celebration of these 12 graduates, a total of 135 interns have successfully completed their dietetic internship with NOSM. Of the more than 280 NODIP preceptors, 50 are graduates of the internship program and 23 are NOSM faculty. NODIP was the first post-degree internship of all Canadian dietetic education programs to be assessed using the new Partnership for Dietetic Education and Practice Accreditation Standards under which NODIP received full accreditation until 2022.
