Hours: Monday 8:30 AM to 5 PM; Wednesday - Friday 8:30 AM to 5 PM

 

What you will do: This is an outpatient experience during which you will be under the supervision of a highly regarded physician educator who is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology.

The attending is actively involved in the education of internal medicine residents at the University of Washington during inpatient months, and also has students from the medical school rotating through the outpatient practice.  

This practice provides care in both internal medicine and endocrinology to the patients seen in the office. ​After one week of observation, you will take on an increasing role in patient care (please note that this not a shadowing observership; you will be actively involved in patient care). This includes the following:​​

  • You will present patients.

  • You will enter clinic notes in the EMR (Epic).

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

You will receive regular feedback on your performance. 

There may be opportunities to attend teaching conferences but this is at the discretion of the preceptor. Some students have had opportunities to write case reports. The availability of such opportunities is at the discretion of the preceptor. Students with an interest in writing case reports should indicate their interest early in the rotation. 

 

Who should consider this rotation: International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking hands-on patient care experience in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, or Endocrinology.

 

​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.
