Location: Denver

This combined inpatient and outpatient US clinical experience will take place in Denver, Colorado. This rotation is currently unavailable through August 2024.

Inpatient/Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Cardiology

What you will do:

You will be under the supervision of a cardiologist who is involved in medical student and resident (transitional year and internal medicine) education. The physician has taught students from the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Rocky Vista College of Osteopathic Medicine. The doctor holds staff appointments at Presbyterian St. Luke's Medical Center, North Suburban Hospital, Medical Center of Aurora, and Sky Ridge Medical Center. 


You will see patients in the office and in the hospital. After a few days of observation, you will take on an increasing role in patient encounters and learn the following under the preceptor’s supervision:


  • Taking patient histories.

  • Performing physical exams under the physician's supervision.

  • Presenting patients.

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

  • Educating patients.

  • Delivering talks about important topics.

  • Spending time with other healthcare professionals in the office to understand their roles and responsibilities.


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. IMGs seeking careers in family medicine or internal medicine will find this rotation particularly useful since cardiology problems are common in outpatient and inpatient practice.

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 the best preceptor to learn many aspects of medicine, not just cardiology; he made sure I get the most out of this rotation. He even advised me about residency and how I should approach it.
