Internship Profile: Joaquin Carral, Nutrition Intern

Joaquin Carral"Over the last year, I was able to spend two two-week sessions interning with PCRM. Spending a total of four weeks with PCRM gave me the opportunity to learn about the different programs that PCRM offers. My visits to PCRM helped my medical training enormously. As many people know, most medical schools, including my school, lack nutrition education for physicians in training. Being at PCRM greatly increased my knowledge of nutrition issues and made me aware of the gaps in my nutrition education. When I returned to my residency program, I started reading more and more on nutrition so that I will be able to help my patients by understanding a bit more about a subject that we as physicians should be required to master. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Barnard and everyone at PCRM for giving me the opportunity to work with them." - Joaquin Carral, Nutrition Intern
