Reconsideration of an Evaluation

A dietetic intern may request a reconsideration of an evaluation made by an affiliating institution’s dietitian. The following procedure will be followed:

  1. The dietetic intern will notify the Dietetic Internship Director of his/her dissatisfaction with an evaluation within one week after the evaluation is discussed.
  2. The Internship Director will discuss the evaluation with the intern and the intern can decide if he/she would like to schedule a meeting with the supervising dietitian and Internship Director to discuss the evaluation.
  3. If after the meeting the dietetic intern feels that a satisfactory settlement is not reached, he/she may write a rebuttal statement to attach to the evaluation.  The affiliating dietitian may also add comments.  Both parties may review each other’s comments.  A summary statement of the conference discussion will be written by the Director of the Dietetic Internship and signed by all parties.
  4. In the event that no agreement is reached, the evaluation will stand as the affiliating institution’s dietitian has written it; however, all copies of rebuttals and dietitian’s comments will remain attached to the evaluation sheet.
