About Bruno Lima
“During my internship, I was exposed to a variety of dietetic applications and have directly worked with Registered Dietitians, doctors, nurses, and speech pathologists. These professionals helped me to enhance my assessment, diagnosis, intervention, monitoring/evaluation skills, and become confident in the field practices. I was able to see patients in varied settings such as long-term, outpatient, and intensive care, and the vast exposure has improved my critical thinking skills. I was able to fully put into practice the Nutrition Care Process aimed towards different disease conditions. I have been able to shadow all of the Registered Dietitians that I’ve worked with, and their continuous guidance has improved my professional skills considerably.
Interning at a clinical hospital setting was new to me, including much of the terminologies and the clinical environment culture. However, the Registered Dietitians involved in the internship were highly trained professionals and provided me with all of the necessary conditions for me to succeed and be confident. My professors from Sage kept in touch with my mentors at the hospital and were able to help me with some learning methodologies. For instance, I had difficulty to manage my time and be able to see several patients in a day. On a phone call, my professor was able to provide me with crucial time management information which ultimately allowed me to complete my clinical rotation successfully.
Having a professor who was readily available to listen and help me made the whole difference in the completion of my internship. She made me feel cared for, supported and above all made me think I was not alone in this journey. I highly and genuinely recommend the Russell Sage College Dietetic Internship to anyone. Thank you, Sage !”
