Specialty: Radiology (Interventional)
MD2B Connect Physician ID # 52
Where will the rotation take place: This rotation will take place 20 minutes east of downtown Houston.
Hours: Monday - Friday 9 AM to 3 PM
What you will do: This is a combined inpatient and outpatient experience during which you will be under the supervision of a board certified interventional radiologist. He holds staff appointments at Advanced Diagnostics East Hospital, Cornerstone Hospital, and Nexus Hospital.
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 enter progress notes
You will have opportunities to research the literature to answer clinical questions at the point of care.
You will be involved in patient education.
You will spend time with other healthcare professionals to understand their roles and responsibilities.
You will receive regular feedback on your performance.
There will also be time set aside to work on projects in the preceptor's practice. These projects will allow you to build important skills outside clinical medicine that will be attractive to residency programs. The exact nature of the radiology project will be decided by the preceptor.
Who should consider this rotation: IMGs seeking hands-on patient care experience in Radiology.
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.
