I did a rotation with Dr Khan at the epic heart and vascular centre in the month of September, 2022. This rotation was my introduction to healthcare in the US. Even though i’d done rotations elsewhere before, i learned a lot more here. Dr Khan makes sure to include you in everything going on at the clinic and hospital.

At the hospital i attended rounds, discussed echo and stress test reports with dr khan and observed a myriad of procedures. Procedures that I observed included transesophageal echocardiography, coronary angiography, angioplasties and peripheral angiographies and angioplasties. So anything that Dr khan was working on, he made sure to include us as well.

At the clinic, we had direct hands on contact with patients. I evaluated patients on their EMR profiles first, afterwards directly talking to them and examining them. This was followed by writing notes in the respective EMR system. You get to do all of this independently, so I got to learn a lot about myself as a physician, as well as the US healthcare system. I saw myself progress exponentially in my clinical skills and my bedside manner during this rotation as a result of all the practice i got.

Having access to EMR systems and directly working with it has really prepared me for residency programs. Not just the EMR access but everything else has also prepared me well to tackle whatever will be thrown at me in residency.

I also got to work with the ultrasound technicians – learnt about the basics of arterial and venous ultrasounds as well as echocardiography. In office interventions that I observed were Varithenas and venaseals. Dr Khan explained everything while he was doing the procedures.
I was given the opportunity to present AHA guidelines about surgical considerations in Valvular heart disease. We discussed the topic and was given useful feedback about it.

So over all it was a great experience and I would highly recommend anyone to come and work with Dr Khan before residency. He’s kind, very considerate and a great mentor.
