As of Friday, June 20th, I am now “RD-eligible.” Translation: I’m done with everything but the exam! As you might have gleaned from my absence over the past 10 months, the internship was definitely a challenge in terms of time management, but it was one of the most rewarding and educational experiences I’ve had in my whole life. Perhaps most importantly, it convinced me that I have chosen the right career path. Dealing with patients came remarkably easily, particularly considering my usual introverted tendencies. Apparently, I’m passionate enough about food and nutrition to overcome my characteristic shyness.
If any of you are interested in hearing about the rotations that I have yet to report on (including, but not limited to: diabetes education, clinical research, public health, and food service management), please let me know. I’ll gauge interest and either e-mail you or publish a post here.
In the meantime, I’d like to return my attention to the Broccoli Hut a few times per week. I’ve got a little spare time this summer before I launch into the PhD program full-time in August. I have a stack of food magazines I plan on diving into later this evening, and hopefully they’ll provide me with some culinary inspiration.
What would you like to see on The Broccoli Hut? Recipes, health information, something else? Let me know in the comments!
