Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Internal Medicine

What you will do:

This is an outpatient experience during which you will be under the supervision of a physician who is board-certified in Internal Medicine. The preceptor holds hospital privileges at Overlook Hospital. The physician has extensive experience teaching medical students and residents and was formerly a Clinical Associate Professor at Seton Hall University.

This preceptor believes in the delivery of cost-conscious healthcare with a focus on using the history and exam to guide the proper ordering of diagnostic testing. You will learn how to practice patient-centered care with an emphasis on going above and beyond for patients, as you would want and expect from your own physician. New patient evaluations will be extensive, often lasting 1-2 hours.

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 under supervision.

  • Examining patients under supervision.

  • Presenting patients.

  • Assisting the preceptor with the EMR (Patient Fusion).

  • Have opportunities to research the literature to answer clinical questions at the point of care.

  • 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.

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.


This rotation is perfect from a primary care outpatient point of view. Students get to see a wide variety of cases from simple dermatology cases to extremely common cardiology cases along with rare rheumatology cases. I was able to perform a complete history and physical exam along with EKGs, spirometry, audiometry, vision tests, and age-appropriate questionnaires. I was able to record notes in the EHR under the supervision of the doctor. All in all, this is the perfect rotation to get acquainted to the outpatient setting in the US medical system.
