Plan Your Own

Interns have benefited from the Plan Your Own (PYO) experience in several ways.  First and foremost, they are free to choose any area of dietetics they wish to explore further.  From test kitchens and lactation consultants to eating disorder centers and fitness facilities, BIDMC dietetic interns have tried it all.  Through this unique experience they have the opportunity to discuss career paths, develop contacts in fields that are of interest to them, and gain valuable experience and exposure in specialties to which they otherwise would not have had access.  Interns PYO experiences are not limited to the Boston area, but each PYO rotation must have a signed affiliation agreement before the intern can spend even one day at a specific rotation.
