Outpatient US Clinical Experience in Pulmonology

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 pulmonary and critical care medicine. The physician completed internal medicine residency at Howard University and served as chief resident in the final year of training. Following fellowship training in pulmonary and critical care medicine, the doctor established a practice in Washington D.C. and has been delivering high quality care for several decades. The preceptor holds hospital privileges at the Adventist Healthcare System. For years, the physician has been actively involved in the education of international medical students.


Please note that the most of your experience will take place under the doctor's supervision. However, on Wednesdays, you will be working with a colleague in the practice.


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.

  • Observing pulmonary procedures including bronchoscopy and PFTs

  • 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.

Who should consider this rotation:

International medical graduates (IMGs) and students seeking US clinical experience in Pulmonology.

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!
