I had the opportunity to rotate with Dr. Usman khan in May 2023. During the rotation, Dr. Khan displayed outstanding skills and dedication to teach the students. He asked us our expectations from the rotation and what our goals are.

He appreciated me on having clarity over my goals and ambitions. I got along with the team very well, who was more than welcoming.

We had weekly student presentations on the latest guidelines and journal clubs to discuss novel research. I had the opportunity to present case reports. I presented on newly published article in JACC “woman with jerking movements and abdominal pain” on which Dr. Khan appreciated on presenting the topic in an interesting way.

My EKG skills improved in those 4 weeks and I learned how to interpret echo and stress test results.
I was appreciated by Dr. khan on quickly grasping the EKG’s basics.

I learned how to do clinical reasoning and improve my diagnostic abilities, accurately assessing cardiac conditions and formulating appropriate treatment plans. I had a one on one interaction with the patients.

The nurse practitioners working under Dr. Khan were very co operative.

My day at the clinic consisted of taking patient histories, performing pertinent examinations and then making patient notes. I also got the chance to observe many cardiovascular procedures like cardiac catheterization and had the chance to see and learn about stress testing, echocardiography, carotid doppler, arterial, and venous duplex scans. I observed a variety of chronic venous insufficiency treatment methods, including radiofrequency thermal ablation, venaseal and varithena.

I was able to learn how to develop strong rapport with patients, establishing trust and creating a comfortable environment for open communication.

Dr. Khan appreciated me when one of the patient who had hearing difficulty told him that he has a good team (nurse practitioner and me) and did a great job in communicating with him.

The encouragement and constructive criticism I received during my experience at Epic Heart and Vascular Center will be something I will definitely carry into my professional career as a valuable asset.

To conclude, this rotation was a great learning experience. Dr. Khan is a great mentor. I consider myself fortunate to have learned so much from him.
