Where will the rotation take place: This outpatient hands-on rotation will take place in a northern suburb of Detroit, approximately 20 miles north of downtown.​

Hours: Monday to Friday 9 AM to 5 PM in the office

What you will do: This is an outpatient experience during which you will be under the supervision of a board-certified physiatrist who has subspecialized in pain management. He completed his residency at the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan and Wayne State University. His practice largely consists of patients with pain. Depending upon their situation, treatment may include a focus on medical therapy or interventional pain management. Among the procedures that are performed by this preceptor include joint injections, peripheral nerve block, selective nerve block, sympathetic nerve block, epidural steroid injections or blood patch, and spinal cord stimulator.

Please note that this is not a shadowing observership. This is a hands-on clinical experience. After a few days of observation, you will take on an increasing role in patient care. This includes the following:

​​

  • You will take patient histories.

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

  • You will present patients.

  • You will write or enter chart notes.

  • You will educate patients.

  • You will observe interventional pain management procedures.

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

  • You will teach other team members.

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

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. 

Although this is largely a clinical experience, there may be opportunities to take part in practice improvement projects. The nature of the project, if available, will be decided by the preceptor.

​​

Who should consider this rotation: International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking experience or careers in physical medicine and rehabilitation.

​​

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.
