Combined Inpatient & Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Obstetrics & Gynecology

What you will do:

You will be under the supervision of a physician who is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology. The physician has attained the highest designation in the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and have been named Fellow (FACOG). Fellows achieve this distinction through additional qualifications and maintaining the highest professional and ethical standards. As an instructor, this physician is involved in the education of obstetrics and gynecology residents. The preceptor is on staff at hospitals within the Ascension Health System.

Rotators that spend time in this practice will be able to appreciate the deep relationships the physician has established with patients over many years. The practice is highly rated for its commitment to providing high-quality care with an emphasis on compassion. This will be an excellent opportunity for students to learn how to deliver patient-centered medicine in the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology.

The hospital component of the rotation will take place at a hospital within the Ascension Health System. Rotators will have an opportunity to observe in Labor and Delivery and during cesarean sections. 

Among the conditions, issues, or procedures you will encounter in this outpatient practice include:

  • Routine pregnancy

  • Well woman exams

  • Pelvic pain

  • Uterine fibroids

  • Endometriosis

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding

  • Heavy menstrual bleeding

  • Vaginitis

  • Prolapse

  • Urinary incontinence

  • Gynecological cancers

  • Basic infertility

  • Ultrasound

During your experience, you will learn the following U.S. medical practices under the preceptor’s supervision:

  • Taking patient histories.

  • Performing exams under the physician's supervision.

  • Presenting patients.

  • Entering notes in the EMR (Athena)

  • Researching the literature to answer clinical questions at the point of care.

  • Developing an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of other healthcare professionals.

The activities above will mostly take place in the outpatient setting. As a result of hospital policies, inpatient activities will be more observational.

Who should consider this rotation:

International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking US clinical experience in obstetrics and gynecology. Please note that, because of the preferences of this physician's patient population, only female students are eligible to complete this rotation.

How to obtain a letter of recommendation:

The rotator should ask the preceptor for a LOR near the conclusion of the rotation. Dr. Desai has provided the physician with guidelines about best practices in letter writing that meet residency program requirements. 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.
