tele-rotation in Gastroenterology

Specialty: Gastroenterology

MD2B Connect Physician ID # 56

Where will this rotation take place: This is a tele-rotation or telemedicine rotation. Therefore, you can take part in this rotation from anywhere in the world. 


Hours: Monday to Friday 9 AM to 4 PM (U.S. Central Standard Time)


What you will do: You will be under the supervision of a board-certified gastroenterologist. He is actively involved in the education of internal medicine residents at the Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. He holds hospital appointments at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center and Presence Saint Joseph Hospital. 


You will see patients via Zoom together with the attending. The attending will lead the patient encounter but there may be opportunities to ask patients questions at the end of the encounter. At times, you will be asked to present patients and cases to the attending and this will help you sharpen your communication skills. 


You will also be expected to  deliver topic presentations. 

Who should consider this rotation: International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking patient care experience in gastroenterology. Those seeking to pursue a career in family medicine, internal medicine, or general surgery will also find this experience useful as GI problems are common in these specialties. 


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. Please note that the letter will be written on hospital letterhead if requested by the student. 

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.

"The doctor is very approachable. I felt welcomed and the whole rotation was very pleasant. He has given me a lot of opportunities to learn. I participate in seeing patients, reading their notes, and also attend many different kinds of meetings. He has given me opportunities to present cases, which is also very helpful." - Yue
