  • You will write notes.

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

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. 

Please note that this is a clinical position. 

 

Who should consider this rotation: International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking hands-on patient care experience in internal 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.
