From the Director

LTC Renee E. ColeOn behalf of the U.S. Army Medical Specialist Corps, I sincerely thank you for your interest in our program. The Master's Program in Nutrition (MPN), is a unique alternative to traditional graduate programs in nutrition and dietetic internships. The MPN is an Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) Future Education Model Graduate Program that offers students an integrated competency-focused approach. This program allows students to rapidly apply lessons learned in the classroom to the real world with multiple practical rotations.

As a preparatory program for military service as commissioned officers in the United Stats Army, our program is based on the Army values of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. We actively seek applicants who support and embody these values and want to be part of a legacy of military dietetics that has continued for almost 100 years.

Our benefits include: a 100% tuition-free program, paid moving expenses, a competitive salary while in the program, housing and food allowances, 30 days paid vacation per year, complete healthcare and dental benefits, and opportunities for paid continuing education.

The MPN is a challenging and rewarding program. To learn more, contact a healthcare recruiter or contact the MPN faculty directly.

Come join us and help us "Fuel the Fight"!
