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.


During your experience, you will learn the following U.S. medical practices 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.


Please note that some of your time may be spent with a nurse practitioner specialized in performing radiologic procedures. 

Who should consider this rotation:

International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking US clinical experience in Radiology.

Testimonials

Dr. X created an environment for learning, he would teach with every patient. There was so much experience to be gained from the rotation. Very hands-on which really was helpful in building confidence. Everyone at the clinic was kind and helpful. One-on-one patient interaction helped me work on my bedside manner which was one of the areas where I felt I was lacking.
