OUTPATIENT US clinical experience
IN Internal medicine

Specialty: Internal Medicine

MD2B Connect Physician ID # 226

​​

Where will the rotation take place: This outpatient US clinical experience will take place in New York City (Long Island). 

Hours: Monday - Friday 11 AM to 5 PM

Hours have been provided by the preceptor. Hours are subject to change at the preceptor’s discretion, but the minimum total hours will remain approximately the same.

What you will do: This is an outpatient experience during which you will be under the supervision of a board-certified internist. The preceptor has had extensive experience educating students in the U.S., and is a faculty member at Touro University and Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell. The attending physician has hospital appointments at Long Island Jewish Valley Stream Hospital and Mt. Sinai South Nassau Hospital. 

Over 20 plus years as an internist, this physician has developed a system to integrate students into the full spectrum of care. Students will learn how to evaluate patients under supervision, including taking histories, reviewing and reconciling medication lists, ordering and interpreting tests, prescribing medications, documenting the visit in the written chart, and calling patients to provide results. Students will also learn how team members work together to operate the clinic with an eye towards maintaining patient flow and improving efficiency. 

The doctor will educate you on best practices in medicine with respect to medication reconciliation and reporting test results to patients. For example, errors can easily occur when test results are communicated to patients without the use of well established processes. Patient safety can also be compromised with an inadequate medication reconciliation process. Since these activities will be an important part of your work as a future resident, this clinical experience will be an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills for optimal patient care. The resources below will help you better understand how to make the most of your learning in these areas:
