OUTPATIENT EXternship IN internal medicine

Specialty: Internal Medicine

MD2B Connect Physician ID # 135

Where will this rotation take place: This outpatient hands-on rotation will take place in Atlanta, Georgia.

Hours: Monday to Friday 9 AM to 7 PM

 

What you will do: This will not be a shadowing observership experience. You will be actively involved in patient care in this hands-on clinical experience. You will be under the supervision of a board-certified internal medicine physician who is on staff at Emory Midtown Hospital and Piedmont Atlanta Hospital. As an international medical graduate herself, this preceptor is very sensitive to the challenges that IMGs face in establishing their careers in the U.S. She aims to give each learner an immersive experience to help build important clinical skills under her supervision. Many of her past students have entered residency, and she is proud to now call them colleagues. 

After a few days of observation, you will take on an increasing role in patient care under supervision:​

  • You will take patient histories.

  • You will perform exams under the physician's supervision.

  • You will present patients.

  • You will write or enter clinic notes

  • You will research the literature to answer clinical questions at the point of care.

  • You will educate patients.

  • You will teach other team members. 

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. 

You may have opportunities to attend the Friday Noon Conference at either Emory Midtown or Piedmont Atlanta Hospital. Please note that this is at the discretion of the preceptor. 

Please note that during peak periods this preceptor has multiple students per month (as many as 10). What that means is that you will see fewer patients per day during those months. However, she has developed a system to ensure that all students remain actively involved, and her system also allows her to get to know each student. 

Who should consider this rotation: International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking hands-on patient care experience in internal medicine.  

Will a letter of recommendation be offered: Yes, assuming that the IMG meets the expectations of the rotation. Dr. Desai will provide the physician with guidelines which will improve the quality of the letter. In some cases, the preceptor may ask the rotator to write a letter of recommendation draft. 

 

During the rotation: Our team will be checking in periodically with you to ensure that you are having an optimal experience. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions during the rotation.

"Daily structured teaching >1 hr, access to patient notes, hands-on experience with patient examination, phlebotomy, shots, etc...Great doctor who treats patients and students like family!" - Liyun

"The doctor is an excellent teacher. She consistently teaches daily; often incorporating patient encounters/diagnoses to give us an understanding of clinical medicine. Her approach facilitates understanding of the underlying diagnosis and the associated organ system. The doctor uses her teaching time to help us to adjust our minds to “real world” medicine while guiding us on how best to tackle licensing/board exams. She is also sensitive to the needs of her patients and has demonstrated that the practice of medicine is also an art. The doctor has also used her practice to teach us about medicine as a business and creating awareness and understanding of the role of insurance in medicine as well as medico-legal issues." - Nicoy
