UAB Dietetic Internship has been a program of "firsts" since we began in 1963. What started as a a 12-month program with only six students, is now a major influence in nutrition education innovations and healthcare policy reform. We were here before UAB became UAB. We were the first program of its kind in Alabama, one of the first in the U.S. to offer distance education and one of the first to collaborate with Medicine in research. We look forward to watching our graduates' impact for the next 50 years.
