  • Future Model Graduate Track (DFM)

    The Dietetics Future Model (DFM) is a generalist dietetic education program with a Community Wellness MPH concentration.  The DFM is accredited by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).  During the program, each student spends a minimum of 1,000 hours at approved practice sites.  The DFM prepares students for practice and establishes eligibility to sit for the examination to become Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN). 

USDE Requirements for Disclosing Licensure Information to Students

The ACEND Accreditation Standards require programs to publish "Information about the requirements and process to become a registered dietitian nutritionist, including education, supervised practice, passage on the CDR credentialing exam, and state certification/licensure, if applicable; and how the program fits into the process." It is recommended that programs add the statement that it is ACEND's considered opinion that the program is designed to and does meet all state dietetics licensure and certification laws as some states may interpret their statutes differently.
