I had the pleasure of doing a 4 week long externship with Dr. Khan. This experience not only added to my medical knowledge but also helped me improve my clinical, and professional skills. As the rotation helped me become more proficient and well accustomed to management of common cardiology and vascular pathologies such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, coronary artery disease, heart failure, peripheral artery disease, and varicose veins. Furthermore, I also gained exposure to interventional cardiology and got to observe procedures such as heart catheterisation, coronary and peripheral angioplasty, and shock wave therapy for calcified vessels, plus outpatient procedures for varicose veins such as varithena, venaseal and radio frequency ablation. I also read and discussed EKG’s and echo’s with Dr Khan at the clinic.

In addition I gave a talk on the effect of treatment of varicose veins on the incidence of venous thromboembolism and peripheral artery disease. Dr. Khan not only appreciated the talk, but also showed me in clinical practice how to implement the new findings into patient care.

Towards the end of my externship, I also had the opportunity to act as a mentor for incoming externs to help them get accustomed to the EMR system and aided them in history taking, which further strengthened my clinical skills.

To conclude, this 4 week rotation was not only very intellectually stimulating but also helped me improve my time management, team work and professionalism skills.
