It’s hard to believe that I’m three weeks into my dietetic internship through the University of Illinois. My first rotation was at a local dialysis center. I was able to observe both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis as well as the multitude of medication associated with each. Assignments included: case studies, bulletin board, renal friendly recipe and educational materials.

My second rotation was at Hy-Vee (a grocery store) about an hour away. It was interesting to learn the dynamic role of a dietitian in a retail environment, and the store I was at actually had 2 full-time dietitians. The longer hours of the retail environment in addition to the commute made for two exhausting weeks.

The remainder of my rotations this semester are local. That being said, I will try to keep this blog updated as best as possible, but some weeks are busier than others.
