Clinical Rotation

Hey y’all! It’s been a bit since I finished my first clinical rotation, but I wanted to hop on here and give you guys an update on what I did! I got a lot of great responses from my last couple posts, so I will keep posting them! I think it’s nice for students to see what to expect once they get into their dietetic internship. 🙂

So I encourage all of you guys to reach out if you have any questions or just want some advice on applying for an internship, what to expect, anything really!

Anyway, to get into the point of this post… my first clinical rotation! I was so anxious for this rotation because MNT has never been my strong suit.

With all the great sessions, the freebies at the expo, and getting to explore DC, I wish I could replay it again.
