Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Endocrinology

What you will do:

This  is an outpatient experience during which you will be under the  supervision of a  board certified endocrinologist. The preceptor holds hospital  staff appointments at Baylor St. Luke's Hospital and Houston Methodist  Hospital. Please note that this preceptor has a strong background in education, having previously served as an Assistant Professor of  Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston.

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.

  • Writing progress notes.

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

  • Being involved in patient education.

  • Teaching other team members.

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

You will receive regular feedback on your performance.

Since  this practice has a large number of Spanish-speaking patients, some  command of the language will be an asset for the experience.

Who should consider this rotation:

International  medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking hands-on patient care  experience in Internal Medicine or Family Medicine since endocrinology  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.
