Comments From Former Interns

  • "All of the clinical rotations were fantastic! The preceptors were open to questions and really wanted the interns to learn. On the whole, the internship was well-planned, well-rounded, and full of excellent learning experiences."
  • "This internship has far exceeded my expectations. Each and every preceptor cares about the interns so much and will do anything they can to help you succeed. You will NEVER feel a lack of support."
  • "The variety of experiences is a strength of the internship, as well as the organization. Many opportunities are made available for interns to pursue areas of interest. The Nutrition department really supports and respects interns."
  • "The clinical rotations far surpassed my expectations. This was a great learning environment."
  • "The biggest strength of this program is the competent and comprehensive coverage of clinical nutrition, with highly specialized programs such as nutrition support and pediatrics."
  • "I feel that I have seen a wide variety of patients and cases that have helped me to learn and feel more confident in beginning a job."
  • "The strong clinical staff her is what really drives the program. The wide variety of rotations cover just about every aspect of nutrition, from oncology and cardiology to highly specialized areas like gastric bypass, inborn errors of metabolism, and children's rehab."
  • "The organization was amazing. We always knew what was going on and never had to worry about making sure everything was going to run smoothly."
  • "This program has a phenomenal clinical program--we have a wealth of preceptors at UVA and they are all extremely knowledgeable in each of their fields and committed to teaching us. As a Level I trauma center, we also get to see some of the most complex cases in the area. Moreover, the internship leadership and preceptors are all incredibly supportive, friendly, and genuinely care about us. I have loved my experience as a dietetic intern at UVA and there is nowhere else I would rather do my supervised practice!"
