This was an amazing learning experience and opportunity for growth. I had the opportunity to grow my medical knowledge during this period. My preceptor took the time in teaching and helping me familiarize with the U.S. healthcare system. He was extremely caring, helpful and provided excellent patient care. Since the start of the observership, I was provided with ample opportunities to maximize my interaction with the patients under dr Khan’s supervision. I was given full access to their Electronic Medical Records. Our discussions of clinical cases were very productive.
He also dedicated a lot of time in helping us understand and learn how to interpret EKGS, echocardiogram and stresstest. I attended ward rounds in HCA Houston Northwest Hospital and outpatient clinics in Epic Heart and Vascular Center. I got the opportunity to observe various procedures both in the hospital and clinic including cardiac catheterizations, peripheral angiograms, echocardiography, carotid doppler, arterial, and venous duplex scans. As well as various venous procedures such as radio frequency ablation, venaseal and varithena. I have found dr. Khan and the staff to be incredibly friendly and helpful with explaining the different steps of the procedures. I also got the chance to do a presentation on the 2020 ACC/AHA guidelines for the Diagnosis, Antimicrobial Therapy, and Management of Complications of infective endocarditis. I firmly believe that my clinical skills have significantly improved during this rotation. My preceptor was a great doctor to work with and I would highly recommend this rotation to everyone.
