Graduates who successfully complete the ACEND-accredited dietetic internship program at GGDI are eligible to take the CDR credentialing exam to become an RDN.
In most states, graduates also must obtain licensure or certification to practice. For more information about state licensure requirements, please go to CDR's site about state licensure.

GGDI is designated with Green Business Certification. GGDI wants graduates to be mindful and educate future clients to adopt sustainable practices that effect climate change.
Interns propose and teach procedures to reduce waste and protect the environment through lessons, assessments, in-services, tours, audits and projects.
$500 is awarded to intern(s) for a nutrition leadership project (rotation) (concentration) that will help to mitigate climate change.
Our graduates are our future crop of dietitians!
