Hi, my name is Jaclyn Capalbo and I am a NY Sodexo Dietetic Intern, currently placed at Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville, NJ. The internship has been flying by as I have already finished my basic, intermediate, and advanced rotations. Last week I began my concentration rotation, which is medical nutrition therapy and takes place in the medical and surgical ICU. I love being in the ICU because I have learned so much about the various ways to treat patients with very complex conditions in terms of nutrition. Many of the patients are on mechanical ventilation, so therefore nutrition support is in high demand in this setting. I really enjoy this aspect of nutrition because there is so much to take into consideration when determining the best way to provide nutrition to critical care patients. For the rest of my clinical rotation, I will be going to St. Barnabas for pediatrics, a behavioral health center and an outpatient renal dialysis center. I am extremely excited to experience working with various populations within the next few weeks. This internship has been amazing so far and I am so lucky to be part of such a great program!
