Specialty: Neurology

MD2B Connect Physician ID # 170

Where will this rotation take place: This outpatient rotation (observership) will take place in New York City (Manhattan). One to two days per week may be spent in a satellite office in New Jersey near the George Washington Bridge).

Hours: Monday to Friday 9 AM to 5 PM

What you will do: You will be under the supervision of an attending physician who is board-certified in two specialties: Internal Medicine and Neurology. Although the attending physician is doubly boarded, the practice is entirely neurology. The physician is a member of the American Academy of Neurology, and on staff at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, Mt. Sinai Beth Israel Hospital, and Lennox Hill Hospital. The preceptor holds an Adjunct Clinical Professor position at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai. 

This will be an excellent rotation for students interested in gaining exposure to common problems in neurology, including migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, and Parkinson's disease. The satellite location in New Jersey focuses on falls, ataxia, and dizziness. The preceptor is committed to teaching. Cases will be discussed as will interesting topics in neurology. Articles from the literature will often be the basis for discussion. 

The preceptor has educated international medical students and graduates from all over the world, and enjoys supporting these future doctors as the pursue their professional goals.The preceptor typically has 1-2 students at a time.


Please note that unlike the majority of our clinical experiences, this rotation will strictly be an observership. If you seek hands-on clinical experience in neurology, we recommend you consider our other options. 

Who should consider this rotation: International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking clinical experience in neurology.  

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.
