Full-time Sports RDs working with USA's top institutions


There are 87,000 Registered Dietitians in the United States (Aug. 1 2013), according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, employed primarily in hospitals, clinics, schools and other institutions.  But specialized Sports Registered Dietitians ("Sports RDs")--those full-time professionals working day-to-day with athletes in structured athletic programs--number fewer than 200, according to the CPSDA.  What follows is an evolving list of Sports RDs on the job 40 or more hours per week in the major college conferences, with professional sports teams, and within the U.S. military.  The number of Sports RDs has been growing, albeit slowly and steadily, due in no small part to the time and training required to meet high expectations in the very competitive athletic or military workplace.
