What you will do: You will be under the supervision of a board-certified family medicine physician. She is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Northwestern University and an Associate Professor of Medicine at University of Illinois. 

She holds hospital appointments at University of Illinois Hospital, Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, and Presence Saints Mary's Hospital.

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. 

Please note that during peak periods this preceptor has multiple students per month (as many as 5-6). What that means is that you will see fewer patients per day during those months (< 5 patients).

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

TESTIMONIALS

"This is an excellent choice for a family medicine rotation...The doctor has a clear passion for teaching and mentoring student, he is constantly providing feedback, and is a great source of how to discuss being a strong applicant for residency programs. He allows the autonomy to perform histories and physicals, formulate plans, and input patient notes. Additionally, you get to collaborate with residents from the Norwegian American Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program and nurse practitioners." 

Jasdeep (MD2B Connect Client)

"Working with the doctor was a great learning experience...The doctor is good at regularly providing feedback and allowing you to know which areas you are doing all in, and which areas need improvement...Working in his clinic, you will not only be able to see patients regularly but will also be able to partake in procedures such as hyaluronic acid and steroid acid injections. He is also knowledgeable about the difficulties that arise with managing a clinic and maintaining a successful clinic. He is very willing to share this knowledge with you, as well as frequently provide advice that will help you become a successful physician. Furthermore, he and his staff were very helpful and pleasant to work with.
