Graduates of the dietetic program are trained food and nutrition professionals who function as members of the food service and nutrition care teams under the supervision of a registered dietitian. They promote health by providing personalized services and referral to ensure proper nutrition.
The Dietetic Technology program at Sinclair is currently accredited by the American Dietetic Association ‘s Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education (CADE), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the council of Postsecondary Accreditation and the United States Department of Education.
CADE serves the public by establishing and enforcing standards for the educational preparation of dietetics professionals and by recognizing dietetics education programs that meet those standards.
The Dietetic Technology program is composed of 107 credit hours. Integrated with the didactic and laboratory components are the 462 hours of supervised directed practice experiences at selected community health and commercial institutions throughout the two-year program.
Completion of the DIT program will enable the graduates to become registered technician members of the American Dietetic Association (ADA) upon successful completion of a national examination.
