Physician ID:




Monday-Friday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Hours have been provided by the preceptor. Hours are subject to change at the preceptor’s discretion, but the minimum total hours will remain approximately the same.

Location: Houston

This inpatient and outpatient US clinical experience will take place in northwest Houston.

Inpatient/Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Pediatrics

What you will do:

You will work with a pediatrician who is highly regarded for her patient care and teaching. In the practice, the preceptor sometimes has pediatric and family medicine residents from the McGovern Medical School at University of Texas Houston rotating. The doctor also precepts nurse practitioner students from different nursing schools.

The physician holds staff appointments at Texas Children's Hospital and Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital. Students rotating in the practice will also accompany the doctor for newborn nursery rounds at a local hospital where the physician previously served as Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics.

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.

  • Writing progress notes in EMR (eClinicalWorks).

  • Have opportunities to research the literature to answer clinical questions at the point of care.

  • Being involved in patient education.

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 pediatrics. IMGs seeking careers in 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.


I got to learn a lot from Dr. X. She was patient and kind and guided me through the whole process. She also gave me sufficient feedback on the things that I can work on. Everyone at the clinic was very helpful. I had a wonderful learning experience.
