What Former Graduates Have Said

"I felt lucky walking into the JJPVA every single day. I can't imagine a better patient population and interdisciplinary team to work with. The combination of diverse clinical inpatient, outpatient and community rotations made the entire year exciting and challenging. This is a once in a lifetime experience, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to learn so much alongside our nations Veterans."
-Lisa Ganguzza, MS, RD, James J. Peters VA Medical Center Dietetic Internship, Bronx, NY Graduate, Class of 2012 

"Nowhere else will you gain as in-depth exposure to a broad range of clinical settings, receive one-on-one mentoring/supervision, and have the opportunity to make a difference in people's health outcomes. I feel very prepared for whatever awaits me in my first job after this VA internship."
-Yuuki Nakayachi, MS, RD, James J. Peters VA Medical Center Dietetic Internship, Bronx, NY Graduate, Class of 2010

-Kelly Moltzen, MPH, RD,  James J. Peters VA Medical Center Dietetic Internship, Bronx, NY Graduate, Class of 2010

"I had very high expectations starting the JJPVA dietetic internship program in Aug. 2009, and I can sincerely state that my experiences here far exceeded my expectations. This is a challenging, rewarding, and overall outstanding program with very knowledgeable preceptors and an incredible director. Thanks to this program, I feel 100% confident that I have what it takes to be an excellent RD."
-Colleen D. Webb, MS, RD, Clinical Dietitian, Jill Roberts Center for IBD, NY, NY, James J. Peters VA Medical Center, Bronx, NY Graduate, Class of 2010

"JJPVA DI creates the perfect environment for nurturing an intern into an RD. The intimate teaching process of the 1:1 intern-preceptor ration and the friendly intern office allows you to grow with the help of friends and teachers. The knowledge gained from each preceptor and fellow intern is indispensible."
-Brandon Caraballosa, MS, RD, James J. Peters VA Medical Center Dietetic Internship, Bronx, NY Graduate, Class of 2016

 "The quality of instruction and committment to excellence upheld by the dietitians at the Bronx VA are unparalleled. In each rotation, it felt like I had a personal cheerleader who wanted nothing more than to help me learn and to succeed in both my long-term and short-term goals. After 12 months of hands-on experience working side-by-side with this talented group of dietitians, I feel confident and excited to finally begin my career as an RD."
