​​

Where will the 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 10 AM to 1 PM; Tuesday 10 AM to 1 PM; Wednesday 9 AM to 4 PM; Thursday 2 PM to 6 PM; Friday 9 AM to 2 PM

​What you will do: This is a prevention/wellness rotation under the supervision of a board-certified internal medicine physician. He is Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He holds staff privileges at AMITA Hinsdale and AMITA LaGrange Hospitals, both of which have residency programs. 

​Since this is a tele-prevention/wellness rotation, the attending will be teaching from multiple sites depending on his patient schedule. The student will be able to follow the physician regardless where he may be since the student will be learning from the comfort of their own laptop/desktop.

The preceptor has created a tele-rotation model that allows you to be actively involved in patient care. The patient will be physically present with the physician or his assistant in the physician's office, and you will be able to observe the encounter. The first week will largely be observation so that you can learn how the process works, the type of questions to ask in the history, etc. 

Once you become comfortable (usually in the second week), you will have the opportunity to take the history either in the presence of the physician or his assistant. If the physician is not present, then you will present the case to him after he enters the room. Following the encounter, you will be able to see how the assistant writes the note through screen share of the EMR.

You will also be asked to give topic presentations several times throughout the month.

You will also be able to interact with the preceptor and his team through a WhatsApp group. Through this group, you will be able to ask questions. 

Who should consider this rotation: International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking patient care experience or observership in Internal Medicine or Family Medicine.

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.

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 - Friday Noon to 5 PM​

What you will do: You will be under the supervision of a physician who is board-certified in Internal Medicine. He is deeply committed to providing patient-centered care. Students rotating with him will gain an appreciation for how care is delivered by a physician who always places the health and safety of his patients first. He strives to understand each patient as a person, and values the development of strong relationships with his patients. 

This physician is a dedicated educator who believes strongly in providing his students with an active clinical experience. He also teaches U.S. medical students from University of Central Florida. Twice per month on Saturdays, you will have opportunities to give topic or case presentations to the clinic staff. 

​​

Students are expected to participate in physician encounters by either Zoom or Skype. After the patient is checked in, the group of tele-rotation students will be responsible for completing the encounter together. You will be assigned a specific role for the encounter (for example, taking the history) while your fellow students will participate in other aspects of the encounter. The doctor's clinical assistant will do the exam and report the findings back to the group of students. The case will then be presented to the preceptor and you will be involved in the discussion. Please note that the preceptor expects that all students will be professional in their interactions including proper attire, respect for patients and team members, and ensuring that your background is free of distractions.
