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 well regarded physician educator who is board certified in Internal Medicine. As an Assistant Professor of Medicine at the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, the doctor has been actively involved in the education of first- and second-year medical students. The preceptor enjoys teaching learners how to take complete/focused histories and exams, develop differential diagnoses, formulate treatment plans, and present cases. The doctor holds staff appointments at North Shore University Hospital, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, and St. Francis Hospital.
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.
Performing physical exams under the physician's supervision.
Accessing or using the EMR.
Have opportunities to research the literature to answer clinical questions at the point of care.
May have opportunities to deliver talks or presentations about medical topics.

In some cases, the preceptor may ask the rotator to write a letter of recommendation draft.
