"My confidence has improved significantly. I have become much more assertive, especially when interacting with other health care professionals. I have expanded upon my educational and motivational interviewing skills through working with a diverse group of Veterans. I have learned how to prioritize the most pertinent nutritional problem when faced with patients who have multiple nutritional problems and focus education accordingly. I have also learned to write verythorough notes and ensure all nutrition-related problems are addressed. I feel prepared for pursuing my professional career in dietetics!"
-Stephanie Strouse, RD, Class of 2010-11
  
"The internship was a great experience. The preceptors are very caring individuals who wish to help the interns succeed. The veteran population yields a combination of difficult medical conditions and social needs that together provide challenging cases for the interns. The class size is the perfect number for one-on-one interactions with staff, yet still enough to pair people up for projects."
-Rachel Kramer, RD, LD, Research Dietitian, Class of 2005 - 2006
 
  
   
   
"Great experience - incredibly pleased and glad that I was able to complete my internship here. The staff relief rotation really helped to build my confidence and made me feel as if I could get an entry level position tomorrow and be successful at it."
