Medical Dietetics is a nationally accredited program that was established within the Department of Preventive Medicine in 1961. Ohio State's College of Medicine is proud to be the first and founding Coordinated Medical Dietetics Program recognized by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Ohio State's Division of Medical Dietetics provides students with a strong science background as well as a diverse set of practical and professional abilities that will benefit them in their chosen field. While students learn the principles of nutrition, they also build their abilities to lead, communicate and work in teams. We continue a tradition of excellence by training the next generation of leaders in the field of nutrition and dietetics.
Across the country, this is a time of transition in the field of Medical Dietetics. In keeping with the greater depth of knowledge and skills needed for future practice in the profession, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has mandated that the level of education preparation for Registered Dietetic Nutritionists be elevated to a graduate level by 2024.
The undergraduate Coordinated Program in Medical Dietetics education at Ohio State is meeting this standard by developing a route to a graduate-entry master’s program in Dietetics. Since that route is still in development, students are encouraged to work very closely with advisors for the most up-to-date information about prerequisites and applications.
