Inpatient/Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Cardiology

What you will do:

You will be under the supervision of a physician board-certified in internal medicine and cardiology. This physician holds a staff appointment at University of California Irvine Medical Center.  The attending is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at University of California Irvine School of Medicine. The preceptor is actively involved in the teaching of interventional cardiology fellows from the University of California Irvine.


During your experience, you will learn the following U.S. medical practices under the preceptor’s supervision (please note that this experience remains within the regulations of California pertaining to the unlicensed practice of medicine):


  • Taking patient histories under supervision.

  • Performing physical exams under the physician's supervision.

  • Presenting patients.

  • Writing or entering clinic progress notes under supervision.

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

  • Educating patients under supervision.

  • Delivering talks about important topics.

  • Have opportunities to teach other team members.

  • Learning about billing and coding.


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


Approximately once every week, you will accompany the preceptor to the hospital where you will be able to observe procedures or round on hospitalized patients.

Who should consider this rotation:

International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking US clinical experience in cardiology. IMGs seeking careers in internal medicine or family medicine will also find this rotation particularly useful.

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.

Testimonials

Dr. X is an amazing doctor. The biggest thing I learnt from him was patient interaction. Never seen patients loving their doctor so much. Truly the best to learn communication from! He is a great influence to students because he demonstrates how he keeps his patients above everything else. He also gives constructive feedback to his students and remembers details so well. He would always go out of the way to teach us and give the experience we need. He is also very understanding and cooperative when it comes to team work in the hospital, which is something that highly impressed me. It is unbelievable how he manages so much in a day. He also always made sure we learn about the patients we see and taught us how notes are typed
in the healthcare system. It was truly the best rotation I had in the US. Thank you so much for this!
