Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Family Medicine
What you will do:
You will be under the supervision of a physician who is board-certified in Family Medicine and Geriatrics with considerable teaching experience. The preceptor is on staff at Good Samaritan Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital Long Island. The physician is involved in the education of family medicine residents at Good Samaritan Hospital. The doctor has been educating international medical graduates for several decades.
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.
Writing or entering clinic progress notes.
Researching the literature to answer clinical questions at the point of care.
Spending time with other healthcare professionals in the office to understand their roles and responsibilities.
Who should consider this rotation:
International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking US clinical experience. IMGs seeking careers in family medicine or internal medicine will find this rotation useful.
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.
I 100% recommend that students do a rotation with Dr. X no matter what specialty you are headed to. He makes an effort to teach you more in that specific field while also helping with a strong base for medicine. He is a kind and enthusiastic doctor working with whom is a joy. His clinical practice is typically very busy, one of the busiest outpatient practice I have been to. Overall, it was a brilliant experience, and I would do it all over again.
