Rotation Sites

Nutrition and Metabolism

The health-care facilities and other affiliated agencies that will offer the supervised practice experiences in clinical nutrition, foodservice management and community nutrition are located primarily in the Galveston/Houston area. The UTMB Galveston campus will be the site of orientation, MS degree coursework, final evaluations, graduation, and will offer the clinical supervised experience for most interns. Site preferences will be taken into account, but the Program Director will make the final decision concerning facility assignments based on criteria outlined in the Student Handbook. Interns will receive their rotation schedules at least one month before the beginning of the semester. A reliable vehicle is mandatory to complete the internship.

The UTMB School of Health Professions maintains affiliation agreements with over 200 rotation sites, and the MS/DI program most frequently assigns students to the sites below.
