The UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial Dietetic Internship Program has over 40-years of experience and accepts 9 interns each year for a 18-month program. In 2016, the University of Chicago Medicine and Ingalls Health System joined forces in an alliance that combined a top community hospital in Chicago's Southland with one of the country's leading academic medical institutions. Harvey-based Ingalls is now part of the UChicago Medicine brand: UChicago Medicine Ingalls Memorial.

Effective January 1, 2024, the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) will require a minimum of a master's degree to be eligible to take the credentialing exam to become a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). The Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) is requiring that all ACEND-accredited dietetic internship programs either admit only individuals who have a verification statement from a Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) or Foreign Dietitian Education Program (FDE) and have earned at least a master’s degree granted by a U.S. accredited college/university or foreign requirement, or has a process to ensure interns complete a graduate degree by the end of the program.
