Future Education Model Program

UB has applied to the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) to open a new and innovative program in Fall 2022 to prepare Registered Dietitian Nutritionists. ACEND released the Future Education Model Accreditation Standards for programs in nutrition and dietetics. These accreditation standards integrate didactic coursework with supervised experiential learning in a competency-based curriculum designed to prepare nutrition and dietetics practitioners for future practice.

The ACEND Board has approved our phase 1 application and will make a final accreditation decision on the program in (2021) after review of our phase 2 report. If successful, following the phase 2 report review by the ACEND Board, we will begin recruiting students for our August 2022 class.
