OUTPATIENT EXternship IN family medicine

Specialty: Family Medicine

MD2B Connect Physician ID # 83

Where will this rotation take place: This hands-on outpatient rotation will take place in the Dallas Fort Worth area (30 minutes north of downtown Dallas).

​​

Hours: Monday through Friday 8 AM to 6 PM; Saturday 9 AM to Noon

What you will do: You will be under the supervision of two physicians who are board certified in family medicine. One has completed fellowship training in geriatrics and the other has completed fellowship training in sports medicine. The practice is dedicated to providing high quality to care to a diverse patient population, including children and adults. Services include preventive care and annual physicals as well as office visits for urgent care and chronic medical conditions. Both preceptors are international medical graduates who have an interest in teaching the next generation of IMG physicians. The doctors are on the hospital staff at Medical City McKinney. 

​You will see patients in their office. Please note that this is not a shadowing observership. You will be actively involved in patient care. After a few days of observation, you will take on an increasing role in patient care:

  • You will take patient histories (you will begin with measurement of vital signs and patient intake but will be given additional responsibilities as the rotation progresses).

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

  • You will present patients.

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

  • You will educate patients.

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. 

 

Although this experience is largely clinical, there may be opportunities to participate in projects to improve the physician's practice. Please note that the exact nature of the project, if available, will be decided by the preceptor. 

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.
