The didactic program in dietetics (DPD) will be accepting applications from CSULB DPD graduates for the Individualized Supervised Practice Pathway (ISPP) program in the spring, after DICAS matching. ISPP programs were developed in coordination with ACEND to offer more opportuniteis to DPD graduates for supervised practice hours. The ISPP at CSULB accepts only CSULB Nutriton and Dietetics graduates who have not been matched to internships through DICAS for at least two-rounds. For more information or questions about the application process, there is an informational board located upstairs in the FCS building, near the Child Care center. Or please contact the director, Emily Haynes, email@example.com.
