Dietetic Internship Application Checklist

Spring 2017 Computer Matching Process

  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE) Scores The GRE is required for application to the UCSF Dietetic Internship. The GRE must have been completed within the last five years, as applicants must arrange with the GRE testing service to have an official score report sent to UCSF directly (the GRE testing service only keeps scores on record for five years). Note that the GRE is waived for applicants who have completed a graduate degree before the start date of the internship from a graduate school program that did not require the GRE for admission. Please plan to complete the GRE in time to submit your scores to UCSF by the February 15, 2017 deadline.
  • Arrange with the GRE testing service to have your official scores sent to UCSF directly. Indicate UCSF Medical Center (#2107) as your Institutional Code.
