Monday - Friday 8 AM to 5 PM

Hours have been provided by the preceptor. Hours are subject to change at the preceptor’s discretion, but the minimum total hours will remain approximately the same.

Location: Miami

This outpatient US clinical experience will take place in Miami, Florida (approximately 40 miles north of downtown Miami). Please note that there are two outpatient locations (three days of the week will be spent at one location with the remaining two days at the other location).

Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Gastroenterology

What you will do:

You will be under the supervision of a physician who is board certified in internal medicine and gastroenterology. The preceptor is on staff at the following hospitals: Broward Health and HCA Florida Healthcare. As a Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at Florida International University, this attending is actively involved in the education of medical students and internal medicine residents at Broward Health, an IMG-friendly residency program in the Miami area.

Your time will be spent in the doctor's outpatient practice where you will also work with two other colleagues, both of whom are board-certified gastoenterologists. One colleague is a core faculty member of a different internal medicine residency program which is also IMG friendly.

The practice will expose rotators to the full breadth of problems encountered in outpatient gastroenterology. Rotators will learn best practices in the evaluation of patients presenting with a wide variety of symptoms, including abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, constopation, diarrhea, bloating, and difficulty swallowing.

Among the procedures performed by the physicians in this group include screening and diagnostic colonoscopy, upper endoscopy, and small bowel capsule studies. Rotators interested in observing procedures should inform the doctor so that arrangements can be made to accompany the doctor to the surgery center where such procedures are performed.

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 or entering clinic progress notes (Care360 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 in internal medicine or gastroenterology. IMGs seeking a career in family medicine will also find this rotation useful as gastroenterology problems are commonly encountered in primary care.

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 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!
