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 Anne Arundel Medical Center.  For years, the physician has been actively involved in the education of medical students and residents from different schools, including the Howard University College of Medicine.


This preceptor sees many patients with chronic medical conditions, and this will be an excellent opportunity to see and take part in the care of these disease processes in the outpatient setting. The physician also has a deep focus on preventive medicine, and IMGs will be able to gain a better understanding of the role internal medicine physicians play in the prevention and early detection of disease.


During your experience, you will learn the following U.S. medical practices under the preceptor’s supervision:


  • Taking patient histories under supervision.

  • Examining patients under supervision.

  • Presenting patients.

  • Writing or entering clinic or progress notes.

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

  • Educating the patient.

  • Spending time with other healthcare professionals to understand their roles and responsibilities.


Several days a week, you will be able to attend educational lunch programs.

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.

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!
