Hours: Monday - Friday 8 AM to 5 PM

 

What you will do: You will be under the supervision of a physician who is an Instructor of Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He is involved with teaching internal medicine residents from the University of Colorado. He holds staff appointments at Presbyterian St. Luke's Medical Center, North Suburban Hospital, Aurora Medical Center, Saint Joseph Hospital, and Sky Ridge Medical Center. 

You will see patients in his office and in the hospital. After a few days of observation, you will take on an increasing role in patient care (please note that this is not a shadowing observership this is a hands-on experience):

  • You will take patient histories.

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. 

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, development of case reports, and participation in ongoing 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 availability and nature of the project will be at the discretion of the preceptor. 

 

There may be opportunities to attend hospital conferences during the noon hour.

TESTIMONIALS

"Very passionate about his work and teaching. He always made sure to teach me something new and was patient during the teaching process and open for questions. The communication with him and the rest of the medical staff was very comfortable, and all were friendly and helpful. His high motivation and teaching approach made my elective experience unique,and strengthened my love for internal medicine and cardiology. This rotation is highly recommended for anyone who would like to learn about the US medical system, improve his medical knowledge, and join a highly qualified doctor."

Saleh (MD2B Connect Client)

"The doctor is very knowledgeable and knows well about the clinical trials conducted in cardiology field. He will train every student well for EKG reading and I was able to be exposed to a wide variety of EKGs from his archived files and current patients...He is very approachable and willing to answer my questions...He would generously provide me the right directions to learn and suggestions to expand my understanding."

Pu (MD2B Connect Client)

"I want to start with statement, that it was a rare luck to work with and learn from this doctor. He is phenomenal...The doctor is a great mentor and a role model. I saw dozens of interesting medical cases, I really enjoyed the way he approached them, how he was diagnosing and managing them, talking to patients, examined them. It gave me knowledge and confidence on diagnosis and management of common cardiac problems.  The doctor allowed me to see his patients. We were practicing patient presentation until he was certain I am doing it well. The doctor was always open for questions or discussions. I really appreciate honest and constructive feedback and suggestions the doctor gave me on how to move forward in my training."magnificen

Oleg (MD2B Connect Client)

"The doctor is an excellent cardiologist and person. He explains EKG like no other attending I have every met. He is an excellent bedside manner and relationship with patients. He takes thorough medical history and physical exam and is thoughtful and patient when explaining to patients their condition and answering all questions. He is always on time and ready to help other doctors, patients, and staff. It was truly an honor to learn from him!"

Mayra (MD2B Connect Client)

"It was a pleasure to work with the doctor. I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to work with a passionate doctor and teacher; it made my experience worth my time especially in the midst of a COVID response. He went out of his way to make sure that I had the full cardiology experience: EKGs, echos, stress tests, tilt table tests, catheterizations, including rotating with a pediatric cardiologist. It has boosted my confidence in reading EKGs, and looking at echos doesn't seem daunting anymore. I want to acknowledge that the magnitude of exposure during this rotation was way more than my experience during my training in India...I am definitely moving forward feeling more enriched, confident and will cherish my experience in Denver."

Jinzy (MD2B Connect Client)

"This rotation exceeded my expectations in every possible way. The preceptor goes above and beyond to make sure that his student is excellent in the interpretation of EKGs, he has several hundred EKGs that he expects you to interpret over the course of the month. I was also exposed to every aspect of Cardiology imaginable, from coronary catheterizations to echocardiograms, stress tests, tilt table tests, pace-maker checks, nuclear cardiology and I was even able to spend two mornings with a pediatric cardiologist and scrub-in to some interventional procedures. The preceptor also expects you to prepare several presentations to evaluate and work on your confidence and teaching skills as well as presenting patients in the office. He is always extremely supportive and gives positive feedback and great constructive criticism. Working with this preceptor was an incredible privilege and I cannot recommend this rotation enough!"
