The Texas State Dietetic Internship is located in San Marcos, Texas. We are a part of the Nutrition and Foods program in the School of Family and Consumer Sciences.
San Marcos is a college town with a population of approximately 60,000 people, located at the headwaters of the San Marcos river. The city is situated along Interstate 35 approximately midway between Austin and San Antonio.
Dietetic Interns complete classes on the Texas State campus, and participate in supervised practice rotations throughout Central Texas. While every effort is made to place interns at sites close to where they live, interns should expect to travel as far south as San Antonio and as far north as Round Rock over the course of the internship. In 2018, we added a pediatric inpatient rotation at Children's Memorial Hermann in Houston, TX. Currently, two interns complete three-week rotations at that hospital.
