I rotated with Dr.Khan for a month in HCA North West Houston and epic vascular heart and vascular center. I extremely recommend the extensive and high quality US clinical experience that I gained from this rotation. Dr. Khan makes sure from the first day that the observer or extern starts working on EMR and get involved in patient management which is the essence of US clinical experience. I was able to observe heart catheterization at HCA hospital. There is plenty of opportunity to observe and learn stress testing, Echocardiography, carotid doppler, arterial and venous duplex scans. I observed different techniques for treatment for chronic venous insufficiency like radiofrequency thermal ablation, venoseal and sclerosing therapy. I had the opportunity to present presentations on 2022 AHA/ACC/HFSA Guideline for the Management of Heart Failure: A Report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Joint Committee on Clinical Practice Guidelines and SGLT-2 trial( DAPA-trial and emperor trial). I also did a case report under the kind supervision of Dr. Khan.
Everyone at the clinic works together as a team and has great respect for each other. Dr. Khan, nurse practitioners and the MAs constantly gave me feedback how to improve and I noticed a huge improvement by following their advice. The amount of experience and work was comparable to the responsibilities of an intern in a residency program. A typical day was seeing patients back to back and then working on EMR which made me aware of my shortcomings and helped me improve them. Dr. Khan is not only an exceptional physician and cardiologist but a great mentor as well that is unmatchable. I’m happy that I was able to work with him and was able to grow professionally under his supervision. You get to see around 30 patients every day that puts you in a residency comparable environment and help to learn and handle the workload in a time efficient manner. It is located at a very nice location with an affordable suite within a mile from the clinic and hospital. I feel very confident and honoured after rotating with Dr. Khan. I would definitely recommend this rotation to any medical student who is looking to gain clinical experience in the US.
