The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Clinicals Week 5

Well friends, I am writing this post from my phone, at 10 pm, about a week late, and with a cider in my hand. Week 5 was an absolute blur and rather than give you a recap of what I did, I’d like to have a little heart to heart with my fellow RD2Be’s. IContinue reading “The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Clinicals Week 5”

The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Clinicals Week 4

I CANNOT believe I have just completed my first month of my dietetic internship! I’m a pretty adaptable person (just give me a few days and I’ll get used to most things), so I have to keep reminding myself that I am so fortunate to be having this experience and how hard I’ve worked toContinue reading “The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Clinicals Week 4”

The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Clinicals Week 3

Another week of clinicals in the books! Everyone said it would fly by and they were 100% right. I can’t believe Monday starts my fourth week of the internship. I’m really soaking in the experience but I won’t lie, I’m also excited that it’s going by so quickly! On Monday, my fellow interns and IContinue reading “The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Clinicals Week 3”

The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Clinicals Week 2

Another week in paradise! If you’re an RD2Be and terrified of the internship, please don’t be – it’s exciting and you learn so many new skills. As you’ll hear one million more times from everyone who’s been through the internship, just keep an open mind and be flexible! Week 2 of my clinical rotations startedContinue reading “The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Clinicals Week 2”

The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Clinicals Week 1

Tuesday Well, here we are, the very first day of my rotations as a dietetic intern, and in clinicals to boot. I woke up Tuesday morning (Monday was labor day so we had the day off) feeling all the feels. I was a tiny bit nervous, but mostly excited and actually feeling pretty confident! I’veContinue reading “The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Clinicals Week 1”

The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Orientation Week 2

This week was crazy y’all … lots of emotions, lots of knowledge, lots of wine. Let’s get into it! Week two consisted of our second and last week of orientation before heading out on rotations (!!!). Much of the first couple of days consisted of a refresher on malnutrition and nutrition focused physical exams, andContinue reading “The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Orientation Week 2”

The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Orientation Week 1

In undergrad, I consumed every bit of information I could find about the dietetic internship, and I STILL felt like I had no idea what to expect. Part of this is because every internship program is so different, and everyone’s experience is different. Another part of it is that all anyone talks about are theirContinue reading “The Life of a Dietetic Intern: Orientation Week 1”

Writing a Personal Statement

One of the hardest parts of the DICAS application – okay, THE hardest part – is the personal statement. I wasn’t exactly sure what to write at first, and it felt like my story was way too complicated and long to fit into 1000 words. Depending on your writing style, you may have trouble evenContinue reading “Writing a Personal Statement”
