VITERBO DIETETICS PROGRAM ACCREDITED
LA CROSSE, Wis.—Both the coordinated and undergraduate program in dietetics at Viterbo University and the dietetic internship received full, 10-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Dietetic Education of the American Dietetic Association in August.
According to Lori Lewis, chair of the Viterbo nutrition and dietetics department, in the site visit report, the evaluators listed Viterbo’s strengths as quality faculty, support from administration, and the breadth of experience offered to students.
While not a first for the undergraduate program, this full accreditation is a first for the Viterbo University dietetic internship program, which accepts students from throughout the country who have met basic requirements but still need supervised practice to become eligible to take the registration exam.
