Dietetic Internship Graduation

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It’s official: I have graduated from my internship!  I apologize that it’s taken some time to update my blog, but I have good reason for the delay!  Right after graduation I had to tie up a bunch of loose ends, pack up all my possessions, and drive across the country from Annapolis, MD to El Paso, TX.

Now that I am getting all settled in my new home, I am prepping for potential interviews and beginning to study for the RD exam.  Any advice from RDs who recently took the exam is much appreciated!

All in all this internship was a great experience to enhance me personally and professionally.  It exposed me to all different areas in dietetics.  Although my short term goals might be more traditional (most likely a clinical inpatient or outpatient position), I plan to use my IT skills gained in my internship to maintain a website and social media platforms.  Some of my long term goals include going back to school, community work, writing, and ideally some involvement in policy and legislation.  Without the exposure from this particular internship, I am not sure I would be aware of all of my options!

Thank you for following my blog- although the internship is over, I will continue to provide updates until I am finally a Registered Dietitian!

  1. I just wanted to write and thank you for writing this blog of your experiences in the DI. I will be beginning my internship this fall in NYC (next week actually!), and while I am only about halfway through reading your blog, it’s helped me a lot with getting an idea of what to expect, even though I’m sure ours will be quite different. You have inspired me to consider keeping my own blog of my experiences to help future interns. Thanks again, congratulations on graduating, and best of luck in your career!
