OUTPATIENT EXternship IN internal medicine

inpatient/OUTPATIENT EXternship

IN Internal medicine

Specialty: Internal Medicine

MD2B Connect Physician ID # 129

​​

Where will the rotation take place: This hands-on inpatient and outpatient rotation will take place in New Jersey (20 miles southwest of Newark). 

Hours: Monday to Wednesday 9 AM - 2 PM; Friday 9 AM to 2 PM; Alternate Saturday 8 AM to Noon

What you will do: This is a combined inpatient and outpatient experience during which you will be under the supervision of a physician who is board-certified in internal medicine and obesity medicine. In her over 15 years in practice, she has been known for delivering compassionate care to her patients through all stages of life. Her emphasis is on providing quality care and in ensuring that care is practiced in a safe manner. 

 

She hopes to share her joy of medicine with the next generation of physicians by exposing learners to outpatient practice and inpatient work (hospital, nursing home, assisted living facility). With her experience in obesity medicine, learners will also gain an understanding of how physicians partner with their patients to help them lose weight. 

Approximately half of the time will be spent in outpatient care. Since this preceptor takes care of her own hospitalized patients, you can expect to accompany her to the hospital for several hours per week. The amount of time spent in the hospital depends upon the patient census. She holds hospital privileges at the JFK Medical Center. 

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 present patients.

  • You will enter notes in the EMR.

  • You will at times scribe for the physician.

  • You will have opportunities to research the literature to answer clinical questions at the point of care.

  • You will spend time with other healthcare professionals to understand their roles and responsibilities.

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. 

​​

Please note that there may be opportunities to take part in projects to improve the practice. One project involves the creation of new user-friendly EMR templates to enhance workflow. Another project involves studying the outcomes of weight loss interventions in obese patients. 

Who should consider this rotation: International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking hands-on patient care experience in Internal Medicine; IMGs seeking careers in internal medicine or obesity 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.
