“Orientation prepared me for my rotations.”

“The guest speakers we did have were so interesting!”

“For the most part, I loved all my preceptors. All my clinical preceptors did an amazing job and I felt extremely welcomed and included.”

“Being able to observe and be an intern at various locations in the field allowed me to see how many different areas a dietitian can work.”

“I found my staff relief to be the most valuable learning experience as I was able to utilize all that I have learned during the internship. It allowed me to grow as an individual and feel more confident in my abilities as a future RD. It is also a great time to take advantage of learning how to better communicate as a part of the interdisciplinary team.”

“I personally had an awesome overall experience. I loved all of my rotations and the dietitians I got to work with.”

“Carrie was very encouraging and showed support to all interns.”

“The DI team was always available and approachable if I ever had any questions.”

“I enjoyed my internship and worked very hard to get the most I could out of each experience.”

“I feel just as lucky now as I did when I found out I got accepted to this program. I have no regrets in my decision to complete my internship at the U of M or in my decision to be a dietitian.”
