Hours: Monday and Wednesday 8 AM to 6 PM; Tuesday and Thursday 8 AM to 3 PM; Friday 8 AM to 10 AM

What you will do: This is a combined outpatient and inpatient experience under the supervision of a board-certified cardiologist who is Clinical Assistant Professor at the Mt.

Sinai, Interfaith Medical Center, and New York Presbyterian Brooklyn Hospital where he is involved in the education of internal medicine residents. 

Part of your time will be spent at the hospital (typically 7-8 hours per week and usually on Tuesday and Friday afternoons). 

Please note that this preceptor prefers to teach in small groups.

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; you will be actively involved in patient care). This includes the following:

​​

  • You will take patient histories.

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

  • You will write or enter chart 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 teach other team members.

  • You will have opportunities to give talks.

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. 

​Who should consider this rotation: International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking hands-on patient care experience in Internal Medicine or Family Medicine since cardiology problems are commonly encountered 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. 

​​

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.
