Rotation Information


Most of the rotations for the University of Virginia Health System Dietetic Internship take place at the UVA Medical Center. The medical center was founded in 1901 on the grounds of the University of Virginia. Although steeped in tradition, the current state-of-the-art facility opened in 1989.
