Claudia Rodriguez studied Nutrition at the Scientific University of the South, in Peru, but in 2017 she decided to pursue a Master's Degree outside her country. "Among my options, the one that most attracted me was the EuropeanMaster's Degree in Food, Nutrition and Metabolism (E-MENU) of the School of Pharmacy and Nutrition, not only because I had already been impressed by the work presented by one of its researchers in an international congress , but also because it places great emphasis on the training researcher, which was precisely what I was looking to strengthen," she confesses. "Now, two years after completing it, I can say with certainty that I was not wrong in choosing it.

She assures that the program teaches the latest knowledge in nutrition from the hands of those who lead the most innovative projects of the moment. In addition, in his case, he was able to complete the work End of Master's Degree in the research center in Nutrition: "It was a very valuable experience, because there is nothing better than learning by doing. And if we add that you learn from a great team of researchers, the result is a first class teaching ".

Once she finished the Master's Degree, Claudia returned to Peru "with all the desire to put in internship what she learned in Pamplona". "I currently practice the two branches of my profession that I like the most: on the one hand, the clinical side, since I am part of the Nutritional Support Unit of the National Neoplastic Diseaseshigh school in Lima, a center specialized in oncological diseases where we are at position to provide the appropriate nutritional support for the oncological patient to face their disease with the best quality of life," she explains.

"But I can also develop the teaching at San Ignacio de Loyola University, an opportunity that presented itself to me thanks to my training at the University of Navarra and that fills me with satisfaction as I become more involved in the training of new nutritionists."
