It is mandatory for all interns in our program to join us in New Jersey for our Internship Orientation (location to be determined).
Here are a few examples of what to expect during our Orientation:
• Practicing the Nutrition Care Process, Clinical calculations, Food Service calculations, and Nutrition Focused Physical Examinations
• Conduct Mock Interviews for Motivational Interview practice and job interview for an entry-level nutrition and dietetics position.

Orientation was a time to get to know each other and to have fun! Here, Rafeena K (NY) is taking selfies with a few of the other Interns. In the photo on the left, we have Alexandra C (NY), Cori R (NY) and Elyse S (NY). On the right, we have Simi Z (NJ) and Batya K (IL). Our interns were happy to make friends during Orientation and continue to help each other throughout our program.
