Welcome to the series Discovering A Dietitian. The following posts are essentially a journal of the clinical portion of my dietetic internship. The purpose of these stories are to give you a little insight into the mysterious internship. I remember trying to research all I could about how the internships worked and what to expect, but there really isn't much out there regarding actual experiences. I also wanted to give you some perspective when it comes to the actual practice of clinical nutrition. We only learn so much in a classroom, the rest we get from practicing. Hopefully this real life account on clinical dietetics opens your eyes to what your future might hold.
Although I want this to be a helpful tool to guide you in your journey, I want you to remember these are MY experiences in MY internship. You may have a completely different experience, and that's okay. We can't plan for everything, and as I'll say several times throughout these posts, your internship is what you make it. You'll get out of it what you put into it.
On all of these posts I would love to answer your questions and input if you too are completing a dietetic internship, feel free to comment!
