Checking X-Rays


tele-rotation in radiology

Specialty: Radiology

MD2B Connect Physician ID # 149


Where will this rotation take place: This is a tele-rotation or telemedicine rotation. Therefore, you can take part in this rotation from anywhere in the world.

Hours: The attending is on a 7 days on and 7 days off schedule. During the 7 days on week, you will join the attending from 12 to 8 PM (U.S. Eastern Time Zone) three to four times per week for patient care. During the 7 days off, you will receive 3-4 hours of interactive lectures three times per week and 6 hours of lecture once per week (these sessions will be conducted by the attending or his assistant). Over a 4-week rotation, you can expect to have two weeks of patient care and two weeks of interactive lectures. 

What you will do: You will be under the supervision of a board-certified radiologist who has completed multiple fellowships in radiology, including interventional radiology and neuroradiology. He has trained in radiology at the following institutions:

  • University of Texas Southwestern

  • University of Texas Medical Branch

  • Indiana University

  • University of Virginia

For several years, he served on the faculty in the Department of Radiology at the University of Missouri where he was actively involved in medical student and resident education. He enjoys mentoring and teaching the next generation of physicians. Although his practice is now based in Detroit, he continues to serve as a guest lecturer at the University of Missouri-Columbia where he is currently a Clinical Assistant Professor of Radiology. He is on staff at the following hospitals: Beaumont Hospital (Dearborn), Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital, and ProMedica Monroe Regional Hospital. 

Students will be exposed to a large number of interesting cases in addition to common pathologies and will gain solid radiology knowledge which will be a helpful tool throughout their medical career. 


During the experience:

  • The preceptor will discuss learning objectives with you at the start of the rotation.

  • ​You will have access to a large library of radiology cases from which to build your knowledge​

  • You will read studies of real patients with the preceptor (preceptor will present the age of the patient, relevant history, and indications for the test and then read the film while talking out loud what he sees; periodically, he will stop to go over important learning points, ask you questions, and invite you to ask your own questions).

  • You will have exposure to a wide range of imaging studies.

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

  • You may deliver talks about important topics.

  • You will take part in quizzes and learning modules to solidify and deepen your learning.

​​Who should consider this rotation: International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking patient care experience in radiology. IMGs seeking careers in family medicine, internal medicine, neurology, and surgery will also find this rotation particularly useful since radiologic imaging is an important part of diagnosis and management 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 that 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.
