Title: UW HEALTH Dietetic Internship
Grade Remediation Process


I. PURPOSE

To articulate the required criteria and establish a process for grade remediation to prevent
discrepancies in verification of an intern’s successful completion of the supervised practice
experiences (NS 670 and NS 671).

II. POLICY

Academic integrity is a shared mission of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the
University of Hospitals and Clinics Dietetic Internship Program. Interns are expected to perform
all academic and professional assignments and duties in an ethical, honest, and respectful
manner. Interns are deemed in good academic standing as long as they:
• Achieve an 80% or higher on all graded assignments, projects, modules and rotations
throughout the supervised practice experience.
• Maintain a 3.0 GPA for both supervised practice courses: NS 670 and NS 671.
• Maintain a 2.0 GPA for all four Capstone Certificate in Clinical Nutrition (CCCN)
courses.
• Do not partake in academic misconduct as defined by state law, UWS Chapter 14.
Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to: plagiarism, forging of academic
documents, impedance of another’s academic work or progress, falsifying a student’s
academic performance or assisting another with the aforementioned acts.

If an intern falls out of good academic standing, procedures are taken to remediate the situation.

III. PROCEDURES

A. If an intern does not achieve an 80% or higher on a graded assignment, project, module or
rotation [assignment], they may repeat said assignment until an 80% or higher grade is
achieved. They may repeat coursework up to 30 days following their program graduation
date.
B. If an intern does not achieve an 80% or higher on a supervised practice course (NS 670,
NS 671), program management staff will review the intern’s file to identify the deficient
coursework and/or rotation. The intern will be permitted to repeat the coursework and/or
rotation up to 30 days following their program graduation date.

Grade Remediation Process


C. If an intern does not achieve an 80% or higher on a graded assignment and/or supervised
practice course (NS 670, NS 671) by 30 days following their program graduation date,
they will not be permitted to graduate. The program management team will not sign their
Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND®) Verification
Statement. This form is used to verify that all academic and supervised practice
requirements are met.
D. If a preceptor or faculty suspects an intern of academic misconduct, the preceptor or
faculty may contact the intern directly. They must also notify the program manager and
director of these suspicions. If academic misconduct is confirmed, the program
management team will determine the consequences. Consequences may include verbal
reprimand to program termination.
E. The UW HEALTH Dietetic internship upholds the UW-Madison procedure for academic
misconduct, which can be accessed at:
