Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Family Medicine

What you will do:

You will be under the supervision of a board-certified family medicine physician. The preceptor is an Associate Professor of Medicine at Northwestern University and an Associate Professor of Medicine at University of Illinois.


The doctor holds hospital appointments at University of Illinois Hospital, Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, and Presence Saints Mary's Hospital.


During your experience, you will learn the following U.S. medical practices under the preceptor’s supervision:


  • Taking patient histories.

  • Performing exams.

  • Presenting patients.

  • Writing or entering clinic notes

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

  • Educating patients.

  • Giving talks about topics in medicine.

  • Teaching other team members.

  • Spending time with other healthcare professionals (diabetes educator, acupuncturist, homeopathy) in the office to understand their roles and responsibilities.


Please note that during peak periods (Apr-Aug) this preceptor has multiple students per month (as many as 5-6). What that means is that you will see fewer patients per day during those months (< 5 patients).

Who should consider this rotation:

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

Testimonials

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!
