What is the success rate of the students at the LU program?
Lipscomb has had a dietetics program since 1979. The current director has been at Lipscomb for 20 years. Our program uses a variety of methods to assess how well we are meeting our program goals. We conduct surveys of seniors, graduates, internship directors, and employers to evaluate the quality of our educational experience. Over the past 5 years data indicates a 96% placement rate of our graduates into internship programs. We have had a 100% employment record for graduates seeking jobs in the dietetics field as registered dietitians. The complete listing of outcome measures is available on the program website (fcs.lipscomb.edu).
Surveys indicate the majority of our graduates would recommend our program to others. The graduates expressed a high regard for the instructors in the program and the individual attention they received as a student at Lipscomb.
