• What is an RD2Be

    • RD2Be is an acronym for "Registered Dietitian to-be". It is shorthand for any number of pre-professionals on a route to becoming a Dietitian. Undergraduate, graduate, intern, you name it!​

  • What is the purpose of

    • was started to provide value to nutrition students with the aim of elevating the profession of dietetics. Through professional development, resources and weekly interviews with ​RDs, we aim to ensure students are able to grow and develop into prepared professionals as they enter the workforce.

Mentorship Program

  • How is this program different from other mentorship programs?

    • The main difference is the RD2Be Mentorship Program is a structured program that pairs a RD with a student over approx. 6 weeks with guided discussions. It is not an open ended program/internship where the student works for the RD (on occasion such an opportunity may arise after the program).

  • Who can be a student in the program?

    • Any undergraduate, graduate or other student pursuing a career in dietetics, but yet to sit for the RD exam. Dietetic interns may still find value in the program, however some topics, such as 'Volunteering and Extra Curriculars" may be less relevant.

  • Who can be a mentor in the program?​

    • Any credentialed Registered Dietitian. There is not minimum years of practice. Even the newest RD has unique value to provide to students!

  • How many spaces are available in the program?

    • The number of spaces is determined by the number of mentors we have signed up each semester. Students will be randomly selected to participate if we receive more interested students than mentors. The good news is we have an alternative program available for any students that were not paired with a mentor.

  • How long is the program?​

    • The program is approximately six weeks which includes five 1-on-1 meetings with a mentor and five virtual group presentations with all participants.

  • Can I reapply next semester if I did not make it in this time?​

    • Absolutely!
