The CSULB-ISPP through the DPD
The CSULB Individualized Supervised Practice Pathways (CSULB-ISPP) accepts applications for dietetic interns in the spring, after DICAS matching. ISPP programs were developed in coordination with ACEND to offer more opportunities to DPD graduates for supervised practice hours. The CSULB-ISPP accepts up to 25 dietetic interns each year who complete supervised practice in the state of California. CSULB Nutriton and Dietetics graduates are given preference, but application is open to all DPD graduates who have applied and not been matched through DICAS on at least one occasion. 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 DPD Director, Dr. Rachel Blaine at CHHS-DPD@csulb.edu.
