Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Cardiology

What you will do:

This is an outpatient experience under the supervision of a board-certified cardiologist who is Clinical Assistant Professor at Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine. The preceptor holds hospital privileges at institutions within the Ascension, Henry Ford, and William Beaumont health systems. The attending physician is involved in the education of internal medicine residents.

Over several decades plus in cardiovascular medicine, the attending has made contributions in multiple areas, including patient care, teaching, research, and community service. For contributions made in these areas, the preceptor has been recognized many times over and is the recipient of prestigious awards.

The physician has an excellent bedside manner and is known to spend time with patients making them feel heard and understood. The close relationships that this physician has built over a long period of time have allowed the practice to improve patient outcomes and satisfaction. For rotators, this will be an excellent opportunity to work with a compassionate and caring role model committed to the delivery of high quality care.

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.

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

  • 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 or Family Medicine since cardiology problems are commonly encountered in these specialties.

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.


Dr. X is an amazing doctor. The biggest thing I learnt from him was patient interaction. Never seen patients loving their doctor so much. Truly the best to learn communication from! He is a great influence to students because he demonstrates how he keeps his patients above everything else. He also gives constructive feedback to his students and remembers details so well. He would always go out of the way to teach us and give the experience we need. He is also very understanding and cooperative when it comes to team work in the hospital, which is something that highly impressed me. It is unbelievable how he manages so much in a day. He also always made sure we learn about the patients we see and taught us how notes are typed
in the healthcare system. It was truly the best rotation I had in the US. Thank you so much for this!
