My name is Virginia Caitlin Mondelli and I am a current graduate student and dietetic intern at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL. My expected graduation date is May 2015 and I plan to continue living in the Chicago area. My current areas of interest include nutrition policy and communications.
Objective: To secure a position as a nutrition-related public relations professional in the Chicago area upon graduation in May 2015.
I am currently enrolled as a second-year dietetic intern at Rush University Medical Center. By graduation (May 2015), I will have completed over 1,200 clocked hours of Supervised Practice rotations. Rotations for this internship include ten weeks in food systems management, 31 weeks in outpatient and inpatient clinical rotations, five weeks in community rotations and three weeks in communication/marketing rotations.
During the food systems management rotation, I worked in a variety of foodservice operations, including patient meal-service, retail, bakery, and a private club with chefs, managers, and dietitians.
Clinical nutrition rotations have included the opportunity to apply medical nutrition therapy in the inpatient, outpatient, and community settings. Rotations include cardiology, oncology, renal, geriatrics, neurology, gastroenterology, pediatrics, intensive care, and nutrition support. I worked in the allergy, bone marrow transplant, and pediatric outpatient clinics, as well.
