What is the difference between an MPH/RD degree and an MPH in Nutrition?
MPH/RD vs. MS/RD
MPH/RD programs are not dual degrees. While the MPH stands for Master of Public Health, the RD signifies that students who graduate from the program are eligible to sit for their registered dietician certification exam. Students who complete their degree and internship requirement, along with pass their exam, will then have the credentials, MPH, RD—signifying they hold their MPH and have achieved their RD certification.
Generally, MPH/RD degree programs are accredited by the ACEND. The organization responsible for issuing RD examination and certification, the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR), requires MPH/RD programs to offer coursework and supervised practice accredited by ACEND.
