Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Gastroenterology

What you will do:

This is an outpatient experience during which you will be under the supervision of a highly regarded physician educator who is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology. The preceptor completed internal medicine residency and gastroenterology fellowship at the Baylor College of Medicine.

Although the doctor has been in private practice for over 15 years, the physician remains actively involved in education. The preceptor is a Clinical Instructor of Medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine. In this capacity, the physician periodically staffs cases in the Department of Gastroenterology at the Ben Taub Hospital, one of the main teaching hospitals at Baylor. As a preceptor, the doctor has also hosted first-year medical students as part of their Physician, Patient, and Society course. In this role, the doctor helps students acquire clinical skills.

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.

  • Being involved in patient education.

  • 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 Gastroenterology.

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 a true pleasure to work with. He demonstrates a high level of intelligence and empathy towards his practice of medicine. He provided me with several opportunities to learn, not just in the arena of practicing medicine but also the ethics and the nuances of medicine as it stands today. His personality is warm and welcoming, and I felt right at home and comfortable from day one. I would recommend Dr. X as a preceptor to any USMLE aspirant because there is quite a lot a novice to this industry can learn from him. He inspires you to think of medicine in a multi-dimensional manner and is truly a wonderful doctor. He gave me some great advice and treated me like a professional.
