Inpatient & Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Internal Medicine

What you will do:

You will be under the supervision of two board-certified internal medicine physicians who are committed to providing compassionate and personalized care to a multicultural patient population. Two weeks will be spent with one physician and two weeks with the other physician.


Preceptor # 1


This physician holds staff appointments at Broward Health North and Northwest Medical Center as well as several nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and rehabilitation centers. Care will be focused on patients over the age of 18 who present with acute disease, chronic illness, or for preventive screening. The clinic has established programs to help patients with smoking cessation, weight loss, and diabetes control. Rotators will learn how physicians can partner with their patients to optimize health. The two weeks spent with this preceptor will all be in the outpatient clinic.


Preceptor # 2


This physician is board certified in both internal medicine and nephrology and is actively involved in the education of internal medicine residents. Rotators will learn how to evaluate and manage patients with acute and chronic kidney disease in both the outpatient and inpatient settings. Learners will accompany the physician to the hospital for attending rounds.


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 or entering clinic progress notes in the EMR (CureMD & eRx).

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

  • Educating patients.

  • Teaching other team members.

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

Who should consider this rotation:

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

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.
