Hospital named supervised practice facility

From Press Reports

The Mississippi State University Dietetic Internship is designed to prepare students for rewarding careers in nutrition and dietetics.

The MSU internship provides a concentration in nutrition education and therapy. North Mississippi Medical Center-Eupora has been a supervised practice facility for this program each year since 2006.

Each year, eight students are selected for this rigorous 10-month post-baccalaureate program that includes supervised practice at selected sites in north Mississippi.

The interns who complete rotations in this facility will gain valuable learning experience in pediatric nutrition, geriatric nutrition and clinical/acute medical nutrition therapy.

In August the 2012-13 interns participated in a daylong orientation at NMMC-Eupora to familiarize them with policies, procedures and regulations specific to this facility.
