  • Performing exams under the physician's supervision.

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 created an environment for learning, he would teach with every patient. There was so much experience to be gained from the rotation. Very hands-on which really was helpful in building confidence. Everyone at the clinic was kind and helpful. One-on-one patient interaction helped me work on my bedside manner which was one of the areas where I felt I was lacking.
