What you will do: You will be under the supervision of a psychiatrist who evaluates and manages the care of patients with depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD, anxiety, and substance abuse. She provides psychiatric care for both children (> 5 years) and adults. She completed her residency at the National Institutes of Mental Health and St. Elizabeth Hospital. She holds a staff appointment at Doctors Community Hospital.  Previously, she served as Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at Laurel Regional Hospital.

  • You will present patients.

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

  • You will educate patients.

  • You will deliver talks about important topics.

  • You will spend time with other healthcare professionals (nurse practitioners and social workers) in the office to understand their roles and responsibilities.

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. Please note that this preceptor requires rotators to complete HIPAA training prior to the rotation. You may take one of the following courses:

​​

Rotators should send the certificate of completion to us.

Who should consider this rotation: IMG seeking hands-on patient care experience in psychiatry. IMGs seeking careers in family medicine or internal medicine will find this rotation particularly useful since mental health problems are common in outpatient and inpatient practice. 

 

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.
