AGA is endorsing a six-month apprenticeship program provided by Cedars-Sinai for registered dietitians that is designed to provide hands-on experience, mentorship from industry experts and the skills you need to excel in the field of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) nutrition.

As the selected apprentice for July-December 2024, you’ll have the opportunity to work alongside renowned professionals, engage with diverse patient populations and contribute to groundbreaking research. You’ll learn evidence-based diets for symptom management and reducing inflammation, as well as discover how to mitigate common nutritional deficiencies.

The apprentice will acquire real-world experience integrating nutrition services into advanced multidisciplinary IBD patient care. You’ll join the Cedars-Sinai IBD team on biweekly inpatient rounds and rotate through outpatient multidisciplinary clinics.

You will also develop leadership skills by leading a research/quality improvement project and participating in and leading a monthly nutrition Journal Club.

Recipients will receive 74 CPEUs as well as a salary and housing support

The application deadline is Friday, Oct. 27. Virtual interviews and selection decisions will be made in November.

This educational activity is endorsed by the AGA Institute and supported by a grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.
