Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Internal Medicine

What you will do:

You will be under the supervision of a physician who is board certified in Internal Medicine. The doctor is a Volunteer Attending at NYU and Mt. Sinai. The preceptor is also a Fellow of the American College of Physicians.


The physician has years of experience teaching and mentoring medical, PA, and NP students, as well as international medical graduates. The doctor teaches by example and strives to model care that is compassionate and caring. The preceptor is a strong believer in patient education and seeks to empower patients to take better care of themselves. The practice also emphasizes preventive care.


Please note that during peak periods this preceptor has multiple students per month. Because this is a high volume practice, you will still be able to see a sufficient number of patients (> 5/day).


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.

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

  • Educating patients.

  • Have opportunities to teach other team members.

  • Spendiing 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

"The doctor is a very kind and knowledgeable doctor. He requests us to give presentation and summary for each patient we have seen to enhance ourselves. He also gives timely feedback to the patient notes we have typed. In addition, he did not blame my weakness in English, instead he encouraged me to practice more with patients during the rotation there. I believe he is a very excellent teacher and doctor. PS - nurses there are also super nice and kind, and willing to teach students...Very grateful for the great experience there.”
