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 with considerable teaching experience. This preceptor is Clinical Assistant Professor at two U.S. medical schools – University of Central Florida and Florida State University.


Rotators will have opportunities to see patients with undiagnosed symptoms or concerns, acute complaints, and chronic disease. There will be an emphasis on health promotion and maintenance, disease prevention, and patient education. The doctor is known for providing patient-centered care with a focus on compassion. Because this physician has been involved in several community outreach programs, this will also be an excellent way to learn about how primary care physicians are making an impact on the community beyond direct one-on-one patient care.


This attending also has an interest in addiction medicine. Given the scope of opioid addiction in the U.S., efforts to combat it will require the involvement of all physicians, not just specialists in addiction medicine. The specialty of family medicine has been called upon to lead the way and this physician has embraced that responsibility. Some useful resources to prepare you to see patients with opioid addiction include:


How Family Physicians Can Combat the Opioid Epidemic

Medications for Addiction Treatment Guide (see Buprenorphine section pages 41-45)


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.

  • Entering clinic progress note (you will have access to the EMR)

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

  • Educating patients.

  • 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.

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!
