Why Should You Apply to the USU Dietetic Internship?
Now that the internship is over, I wanted to say thank you for all you’ve done for me. Numerous times you went above and beyond to help me. Regardless of when I spoke to you or what the issue was, you always treated me with so much patience and understanding. On a personal level, you taught me how to be more professional, communicate more openly, and resolve conflicts more efficiently. You’ve had a really positive impact on me and really helped me as a person.
Looking back one year ago, I cannot believe how much I have grown this year because of this program! I have learned so much about our profession and myself and I am so excited to be able to put everything I have learned into practice. This internship allowed me to find my aspirations within our field as I completed each rotation. I am so thankful for the USU faculty and my preceptors for all of the opportunities I was able to experience!
I wanted to sincerely thank you for all your support and thoughtfulness through the internship. Your openness and leading with flexibility is just what I needed to be successful while trying to finishing the program during an unsure time (COVID).
Thank you for your support and guidance over the past year during my final leg on a very long journey to become an RD.
I want to thank you for all of your help, grace, and feedback this past year! All of you are so wonderful and I am so happy and immensely grateful that I was chosen to be one of USU’s interns! You were always so helpful and always so prompt at answering my questions. I feel like I am not the same person I was a year ago—in the best way! I have learned a bunch this past year and the program at USU has a large part in that! Thank you so much for everything—future interns will be lucky to have you. You were such a tremendous resource!!
Thank you for believing in me and accepting me into the program. Thank you for being so supportive and encouraging. Thank you for answering any and all of my questions. Thank you for taking the time to listen and to make your students feel heard. And lastly, thank you for being a source of inspiration for me. I appreciate your feedback and helping me further develop my skills. It was truly amazing working with you!"
I am so glad I did USU’s dietetic internship! It was perfect for me and I loved it!
"Now that I am at the end I feel extremey grateful that I was able to complete the program at Utah State University. I honestly feel much more confident because the coursework was challenging and in line with practice. Thank you so much or this opportunity that has quite literally changed my life."
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU so very much for all of the amazing work you have done for me throughout this challenging, yet wonderful dietetic internship. I am so glad I chose to apply to Utah State’s program. I truly could not have asked for a better internship. I so appreciated how organized this DI was, and how available and ready you were to answer all of my questions and concerns. You were always so kind, professional, prompt, and helpful in all of our interactions, and I cannot thank you enough. I definitely owe a portion of my success to you.
"I loved my internship experience! I have to say that the USU program was a perfect fit for my lifestyle. The flexibility of planning my own schedule worked so well for me. While there is some independent learning required, all aspects of the program were so well organized and the support of my advisor was truly indispensable."
"Thank you for this excellent program each of you have worked hard to build. This program unquestionably prepared and challenged me. I truly appreciate it. This program enabled me to really work on my weaknesses and grow as a person, both personally and professionally, in a way that I believe no other program would have done. I was able to take these lessons into the RD exam and will be able to take them into the future. Since graduating I’ve spoken with other interns from different programs and discovered that my experience with you was special. I found that their programs left them little prepared for taking the RD exam and or the transition into being a professional RD/RDN. Thank you for all the hard work each of you do as internship program developers, graders, mentors, and instructors in making it truly special for us all."

I can’t thank you enough for being my amazing advisor this past year. I would not have made it this far without your words of encouragement and guidance.
