Our program is reviewed annually and is subject to change.

All HHS Dietetic Interns have the opportunity to submit their top placement choices to their Dietetic Education Coordinator based on their personal learning interests and goals. 

Two of the 10 Dietetic Interns may choose to have a pediatric-focused experience through a variety of population-specific placement and project options.

The HHS Dietetic Internship Program has placements available across all Hamilton Health Sciences hospitals, as well as with our partners in learning in the Hamilton-Halton-Niagara region. 

You will be required to travel to your placement site.
