What are the application requirements?
The 100 hour internship is designed to provide students that have not had time in the field working with the cancer population that experience. An advisor can help you find a site in your area or help you customize one that serves your career goals. If you have been in practice and can provide documentation of 100 hours of experience, then the internship course requirement may be waived.
The program is offered in the English language only at this time. We accept students from around the world. Graduates of the program receive a certificate of completion from the Oncology Nutrition Institute. Individual students will need to check the laws in their own country, with individual employers or educational institutions to confirm recognition of the Oncology Nutrition Institute certificate.
