1. Flores, Rachel S. Factors dietetics students consider when applying to internship.

Degree: MS, Agriculture, 2015, California State Polytechnic University – Pomona

Background: There is no research describing what factors dietetics students consider when applying to dietetic internships (DI), but research from high school students suggests that Hispanics may be less likely to apply to a DI that requires them to relocate. Educators in California believe that their DIs are more competitive than those in other regions of the country. Objective: To identify the influence of ethnicity, geographic location, and finances on student decisions about applying to a DI. Methods: Internet-based survey using a convenience sample of dietetics students (n=196) in the states of Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Students within 12 months of applying to DI were eligible to participate. Students were recruited via their Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) director. Results: Hispanic Ethnicity was not associated with decreased willingness to relocate for DI, but living with a spouse, child, or significant other was, as was increasing age. Students who attended school in southern California were also less willing to relocate for DI, despite believing that DIs in California were more competitive than those in other states. Conclusions: DPD students who are married or have children are less likely to be willing to relocate for DI. Older students are also less likely to relocate for a DI. Older, married students who live in southern California may be less likely to be matched to a DI because of increased competition for openings. A larger study should be conducted to determine if Hispanics in southern California face similar pressures.

2. Mitchell, Cynthia Lynne. Breastfeeding Intenions, Attitudes, Knowledge, and Exposure of Dietetic Interns and the Attitudes of Dietetic Internship Directors.

Degree: MFCS, Family and Consumer Sciences/food and Nutrition, 2011, Bowling Green State University

BACKGROUND. A lack of research exists regarding the attitudes, knowledge, exposure, and intentions of dietitians toward breastfeeding. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the antecedents of behavioral intention toward providing breastfeeding support in dietetic interns and to evaluate breastfeeding attitudes of internship directors. METHODS. A cross-sectional survey of dietetic interns and internship directors was completed using an online questionnaire composed of previously validated instruments for breastfeeding knowledge, exposure, and infant feeding attitude. For recruitment, the 239 internship directors were emailed to request their participation in the online survey and to forward the survey to their interns. RESULTS. A total of 119 (49.8%) directors and 440 interns participated in the study. Both interns and directors had positive breastfeeding attitudes, 70.9 ± 6.9 and 69.7 ± 8.2, respectively, (85-point scale) with no difference between groups (p = 0.1268). Interns showed strong breastfeeding knowledge and favorable intentions toward breastfeeding with scores of 11.7 ± 1.6 (14-point scale) and 49.0 ± 10.2 (60-point scale), respectively. High exposure to breastfeeding was found in 96% of interns. Attitude (r = 0.396, p <0.0001), knowledge (r = 0.265, p <0.0001), parental status (r = 0.176, p = 0.0002), and internship type (r = 0.176, p = 0.0030) had significant linear relationships with professional intention. Internship type was a significant factor (r = 0.230, p < 0.0001) associated with attitude; those in a health department or community program had highest attitude scores (76.4 ± 5.1). More interns, 92.2%, agreed that it is important to include breastfeeding training in the internship, than directors, 78.6% (p < 0.0001). CONCLUSION. This study suggests that dietetic interns, the future registered dietitians of this country, are thoroughly prepared to promote and support breastfeeding in their future practice; their high professional intentions, positive attitudes to toward breastfeeding, high breastfeeding knowledge, and high previous exposure to breastfeeding support this conclusion. Dietetic internship directors have similar positive attitude toward breastfeeding, and report that their internship program provides sufficient resources to prepare dietetic interns for future promotion and support of breastfeeding.

3. Moelter, Samantha. What are the barriers affecting accessibility of dietetic internships?.

Degree: MS, Health Sciences, 2016, Eastern Michigan University

Objective: To explore the disparity between number of students completing degrees in dietetics, students matched to internships, and current and projected field needs. Methods: An electronic survey covering a variety of factors potentially affecting internship accessibility was distributed to 251 internship program directors, 200 preceptors, and accreditation board, staff, and review members. Results: Of 193 total respondents, 60% agreed that accreditation competencies prepared dietetic interns well and that internship costs may hinder diversity among interns. Seventy-two percent of program directors (n=115) reported difficulties in preceptor recruitment and 56% reported difficulties in preceptor training/orientation. Conclusion: The overarching goal of ACEND®, dietetic internship programs, and alternative certification pathways should be finding solutions that will reduce the bottleneck of qualified dietetics students unable to begin an internship upon graduating and create structures growing the accrediting ability of the field, allowing program development and expansion to keep pace with the growing demand of credentialed employees.
