Appointment Day Procedures

Applicants who receive a computer match are responsible for accepting or declining the match by calling the ETSU Dietetic Internship Director at (423) 439-7524 by April 7, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Eastern Standard Time.

An email of acceptance must be sent to the ETSU DI Director by 5:00 p.m. (EST) on April 7.

Within 10 days of matching, each appointee who has any handicapping condition or medical condition that might involve special accommodations must contact the DI Director to discuss any special accommodation needs which might be required as a result of such condition (including regular physician visits). Failure to meet this requirement will result in forfeiture of the internship position.

For students not appointed to an ETSU dietetic internship position, no application materials are returned.


Important Applicant Responsibilities

As a participant in the computer matching process, it is expected that applicants who receive a match will adhere to the results of the match and accept that match. It is unacceptable to decline a match in order to pursue appointment to another supervised practice program.


As a participant in the computer matching process, it is expected that applicants who do not receive a computer match will not contact any program director with open positions until the day after the established appointment date of April 7, 2014. This means you may not call programs with open positions until April 9, 2014.

This will allow programs time to confirm acceptance from their matched applicants and determine the process they will use to fill open positions. In addition, please do not ask your didactic program director to contact programs with open positions prior to April 9, 2014. They are also restricted from inquiring about open positions.
