There are many advantages to a distance internship. KADDI may even be a money saver because you do not have to relocate for a year or more. If you cannot move for supervised practice, or if you want to custom-design your own program in several sites, KADDI may be for you. We have an excellent curriculum and processes in place to help you and your preceptors. We are as flexible as possible within the ACEND standards and guidelines.
KADDI is unique in that it is a distance program offering you the ability to complete your internship in your own demographic area. This leads to many advantages for prospective interns, as opposed to more traditional dietetic programs.
It is beyond rewarding to find one’s own preceptors and facilities to work with. This can also lead to professional relationships that will develop while working alongside preceptors and others in the field at each facility. Several interns have received jobs due to the relationships they have built while completing their internships located in the areas they live!
The KADDI program is designed to cultivate diversity & strengthen an inclusive environment for all of our interns during their internship. We offer training on diversity and inclusion and are committed to maintaining a culture that allows for its members to feel welcomed, valued, and respected. KADDI is inclusive of, but not limited to culture, lifestyles, abilities, religions, socio-economic status, political systems, and philosophies.
