Supervised Practice Pathway
The University of Hawai'i at Mānoa (UHM) Individualized Supervised Practice Pathway (ISPP) within the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND), the accrediting agency of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and fulfills the same requirements as a Dietetic Internship. The program includes 1,200 hours of supervised practice in various rotation sites. Upon successful completion of the UHM ISPP Student or Preceptor Grievances/Complaints ISPP, each student will receive a verification of completion certificate and be eligible to take the national Registration Examination for Dietitians.
The UHM ISPP provides DPD graduates with an opportunity to increase their knowledge of food and nutrition science and to acquire competencies needed to practice dietetics in a variety of settings. Graduates of the UHM ISPP are expected to function as entry level practitioners in clinical, food service, and community dietetic roles. Each is expected to operate independently with a high level of professionalism and integrity.
The UHM ISPP is focused on Hawai'i’s unique community and therefore, offers a community concentration. Through its activities, the UHM ISPP will promote education of students in the multicultural environment, service in a variety of community settings, and participation in various professional organizations.
