OUTPATIENT EXternship IN internal medicine

Specialty: Internal Medicine & Palliative Care

MD2B Connect Physician ID # 74

Where will this rotation take place: This hands-on outpatient rotation will take place in the Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) area (45 minutes west of downtown Dallas).

​​

Hours: Monday to Friday 8:30 AM to 5 PM (all internal medicine except for palliative care on Monday morning and Friday afternoon).

 

What you will do: You will be under the supervision of a physician who is board certified in Internal Medicine and Palliative Care. After completing her internal medicine residency, she was invited by the program leadership to serve as the chief medical resident, a position which allowed her to immerse herself in one of her passions - teaching. Over the past 10 years, she has remained actively involved in teaching medical students and internal medicine residents, playing an important role in the supervision of residents in their continuity care clinic. She typically speaks at Grand Rounds several times a year on palliative care. 

She has also been involved in residency selection, having served as an interviewer of residency applicants. She is currently an Adjunct Professor of Medicine at two institutions - UTMB and UNT Health Science Center. She holds hospital appointments at Medical City Fort Worth, Baylor Scott & White Fort Worth, and THR Harris Methodist Hospital. 

​You will see patients in her 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 perform physical exams under the physician's supervision.

  • You will present patients.

  • You will write or enter clinic progress notes.

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

  • You will educate patients.

  • You will have opportunities to teach other team members.

  • You will spend time with other healthcare professionals in the office to understand their roles and responsibilities.

  • You will spend time in the front office and billing departments to understand how an office operates.

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. 

There may be opportunities to attend morning report, noon lectures, and Tumor Board but this will be at the discretion of the preceptor. 

Part of your rotation may include protected time for you to work on a variety of projects to improve the physician's practice. This may include creation of patient care handouts, material for inclusion in the practice's website, and participation in research projects. This will be an excellent opportunity to gain valuable skills in patient care while taking part in non-patient care related activities that will strengthen your CV for residency. 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 internal medicine or palliative care. 

 

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.
