▫️In 5 weeks, I’ll be starting the next chapter as a dietetic intern!
▫️Registered dietitians are required to complete an ACEND-accredited (The Accreditation Council for Nutrition and Dietetics) supervised practice dietetic internship. Each internship must provide at least 1200 hours.
▫️Internships are awarded on a competitive basis and most use a computer matching process.
▫️Dietetic students must maintain high GPAs, gain experience in the field and volunteer. It’s a really challenging field!
▫️So to every other dietetic intern out there, I know the time and effort you put in and I just want to say excellent work! There’s a lot to balance, especially if you are working at the same time, so congratulations!
▫️I’m so excited to be in this field and it’s been my passion for so long. I believe nutrition is the foundation for the future in medicine.
