Inpatient/Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Radiology

What you will do:

This is a combined inpatient and outpatient experience during which you will be under the supervision of a board-certified radiologist. The preceptor holds staff appointments at River Oaks Hospital, Advanced Diagnostics East Hospital, Cornerstone Hospital, and Nexus Hospital. Sixty percent of the time will be spent in the care of patients undergoing procedures. The remaining time will be spent seeing patients in the interventional radiology clinic.


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.

  • Entering progress notes

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

  • Being involved in patient education.

  • Giving talks about topics to the team.

  • Spending time with other healthcare professionals 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 in Radiology.

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.

Testimonials

"On top of all great cases we did together and all the practice medical knowledge he taught me, the doctor showed me how to be a good leader, good communicator, and how to approach people across the medical field. I think this was the best experience I had during my externships in the US."
