The Dietetic Technician Program includes four supervised practice experiences. All dietetic technician students are required to have a physical examination and background check completed prior to their first supervised practice experience, beginning the second semester. In addition, the student must have blood tests done to verify immunity to specific diseases, or have immunizations done prior to the supervised practice experiences. Students are responsible for any fees incurred as a result of completing the required health form, lab work, immunizations and background checks. Background checks (BCI & I and FBI) and physical must be completed yearly at the student's expense.
