We appreciate your willingness to serve as a preceptor for our dietetic interns. Preceptors play a critical role in the success of our internship and our interns. We express our gratitude for your time and dedication to precepting and advancing the field of dietetics.

Listed below is the KADDI preceptor handbook, describing the mission, goals, program outcomes, responsibilities as a preceptor, and how to reach the program director. The handbook also provides information regarding the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). During the internship, our interns perform core competencies by completing assignments during their supervised practice. The handbook provides step-by-step detailed instructions on how preceptors are expected to grade these assignments with an example rubric showing an assignment with its associated competencies. The preceptor handbook also contains the internship policies. 

KADDI expects the highest level of effort and professionalism from our interns!

Learn more about the ACEND and your role as a preceptor in the accreditation process of our program.  Included in this training are the ACEND standards and required knowledge competencies interns are required to meet throughout their internship experience.  

ACEND (Accreditation Council in Education for Nutrition and Dietetics) does not tolerate any instances of inequity or discrimination in our nutrition and dietetics education programs.

KADDI wants all our preceptors working with dietetic interns to be trained on diversity and inclusion.  Below is a PowerPoint and a link to the video to review before training students. 

You will earn 1.5 CPEUs

Check out the additional resources for nutrition and dietetics faculty and preceptors on the topic of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).  ACEND is in the process of developing a library of reputable educational materials on DEI.   These do offer preceptors additional CEU opportunities.

How You As A Preceptor Can Help to Eliminate the Internship Shortage

KADDI interns have been struggling with finding preceptors due to the COVID-19 pandemic and staffing shortages at facilities. Some interns have had to travel hours from their homes since no local facilities were able to precept them. KADDI interns may contact you to see if you are willing to precept them. The requirements to precept KADDI interns include:

  • Teaching knowledge, skills, and professional values and behaviors for our KADDI interns to meet ACEND competencies

  • Instilling the need in interns to use evidence-based practice

  • Supervising the intern’s ability to successfully meet competencies on a regular basis

  • Evaluating the intern or student and providing feedback for improvement

  • Demonstrate no bias or conflict of interest

  • Uphold the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' Code of Ethics

KADDI asks that you provide feedback on our program in a timely manner for any questions, comments, or concerns that may arise. 

Being an RDN is required ONLY for the Clinical rotation. It is NOT a requirement to be an RDN for the Community, Foodservice, or Business & Entrepreneurship rotations.

If you believe you would be a good fit to precept KADDI interns, contact us at or by calling 918-574-8598.


"Keith and Associates has been great to work with. They have always sent us interns that are ready to jump into things and learn fast! They each have shown great initiative, confidence, and passion when they rotate with us. We have been so thankful for our great interns and look forward to having more from Keith and Associates in the future!"

– Emily Settler, RD, LD, March 2021
