• Furqan A. (DUHS, Pakistan), April 2021 Batch

    My name is Furqan Ahmed, a graduate of Dow medical College, Pakistan. I had a tele-rotation with HOPE in the month of April and the experience was very good. Before starting, i had not expected it to be as organized as it was. We were also given an opportunity to present on topics and i presented on Hepatorenal syndrome. The preceptor is very well rounded and portrays a real picture of what a doctor can be like 10 or 20 years down the line. In addition, he makes a point to teach students about the other aspects of health care which are usually not taught in most places for example the quality assessment programs and insurance systems. i would recommend this program. 

     

  • Hafiz Abdul H. (KEMU, Pakistan), April 2021 Batch

    It was a wonderful experience with HOPE during April 2021 tele health rotation. The preceptor was very keen to familiarise us with The United States clinical experience during Hospital Rounds and lectures. The presentation I gave on the topic Hepatorenal syndrome gave me a real experience to show my skill as well boost up my command and confidence on the topic. Overall, It was a very well managed and educational rotation. 

  • Jerapas T. (Siriraj Hospital, Nepal), May 2021 Batch

    I had an opportunity to rotate with the preceptor in April 2021. It was overall a wonderful experience. The preceptor gave us the opportunity to learn about the US health system, clinical cases in nephrology, and many other aspects of being a physician in the USA. I really appreciated his effort in teaching us. 

  • Dr. Maha Z. (KEMU, Pakistan), May 2021 Batch

    Hope Clinical rotation with my preceptor was an incredible opportunity for me to brush up on my medical skills as well as get myself familiar with US healthcare system. During this rotation I got the remarkable opportunity to do a presentation on the topic of Volume status management in CKD patients on dialysis. My preceptor’s inspirational teachings guided me in getting a strong grasp of medical concepts and enhanced my thirst for nephrology as a speciality. I would recommend this clinical rotation to my fellow colleagues who are looking for a valuable clinical experience and polishing their medical skills. 

  • Dr. Hamnah T., April 2021 Batch
    Thank you so much Sir for accommodating us so generously during our April rotation. It’s a really informative learning experience overall. No doubt, your mentorship and dedication will help me polish my skills and get acquainted with the medical system in US, more importantly it will be a guiding light for my career later on. I was intrigued by the standard of care being upheld in your program and was especially captivated by your work.
  • Eusha Abdul R. & Maria K. – September Batch 2020
    "I hope that you are well. Me and my spouse were fortunate enough to virtually rotate with you in Sep-Oct 2020. This was the only USCE/US LOR that we had in our CV.
    Alhamdulillah, we couple matched. I can't thank you enough for giving us this wonderful opportunity and guiding us in every way possible.
    Lots of prayers for you and your family. Stay blessed Sir. JazakAllah Khair."
  • Dr. Brisandi R., September 2020 Batch

    “My name is Brisandi Ruiz. I was one of the students who had the pleasure to rotate with Dr Shafi during September 2020. I matched in Internal Medicine. I wanted to thank Dr. Shafi because the advice he gave me was one of the most important things that helped me to match. I will be always grateful to him for teaching me the real way the american healthcare system works. Without that my application wouldn't be as strong as it was. Thank you so much.”

  • Shriya D., September 2020 Batch

    “I hope this email finds you well. I am Shriya, an ENT surgeon from India who telerotated under you in Sept 2020. I am thrilled to let you know that I matched into an Internal Medicine Residency at Einstein Medical Center, Montgomery, PA.

    My interviewers told me that your letter was one of the best they had read about me. Attending your telerotations was inspiring and highly motivating to me. I was able to focus, and your pep talks made me perform to the best of my abilities in a short time. I have gained good Nephrology knowledge along with excellent analytical skills, organizational skills, and presentation skills. I hope to carry this forward into my residency and my practice as an Internist.

    Your training for students like me is exceptional. I wish for you to continue to teach and groom many more students. I pray to keep you healthy and touch many more lives.”

  • Dr. Shriya D., September 2020 Batch

    It was indeed a great learning experience from you and all fellow doctors who rotated with me from 1st September to 30th September. I not only learned the tricks to manage complex cases, but also learned the most important life lessons such as having confidence. Discussions have made me a better person as both a candidate for Residency and as a person.

    I will cherish every session- be it the Pep talks that were given to us, case discussions, didactic sessions or even the Research paper writing. I was thrilled to present Indications and Goals of Treatment in IgA Nephropathy and FSGS. This helped me overcome my inhibitions on presentation (I have presented after 2 long years. My last presentation was a poster on Wilson's Disease in 2018 on Rare Disease Day at the NIH). I have no words to thank you enough. I would be honored by your Letter in support for my Residency.

  • Dr. Manish S.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity of tele-rotating under your guidance. I would also like to thank the moderators for conducting these rotations so smoothly and the entire hope team for this amazing experience. I learned remarkably enhancing not only my clinical knowledge and skills but also as a confident person. I am sure. This is going to help me tremendously in my future endeavors.

    I am applying this match for Internal Medicine Programs only.

    I presented a case on Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome on 09/11/2020.

  • Dr. Hira G. N.

    I would like to thank you for providing me with an invaluable learning experience. It has been a pleasure attending these sessions and I have gained much practical knowledge about the healthcare system in the US.

    I particularly enjoyed being able to directly interact with you and the other interns and have detailed discussions regarding patient cases. Your emphasis on presenting relevant information and devising management plans accordingly was very educational. I greatly appreciated the weekly presentation sessions which were an enjoyable experience as well, and where I presented Septic Shock with particular emphasis on its management.

    Thank you for your time and patience during this past month. Your insight into the healthcare system in US, your mentoring regarding the match and residencies, and your expertise in patient care was a very welcome part of this rotation and has taught me far more than I could have expected from a tele-rotation. I would also like to acknowledge Dr. Jawwad professionalism in dealing with the interns.

    Thank you, again, for helping to make my rotation a rewarding experience. I hope to keep in touch with you and the rest of the team at HOPE. Warm regards,

  • Dr. Tehlil R., September 2020 Batch

    I graduated from Dow Medical College in Pakistan in 2018. I rotated during the month of September 2020. My experience with program, HOPE team and the colleagues was very enriching and a great learning experience. We learned to manage sepsis and COVID-19 and how to approach patients in dialysis in Internal Medicine and Nephrology. Telerotations can be challenging in terms of the 'computer barrier' in between but this was very well coordinated and I felt like I am actually in the hospital during rounds or a conference hall during the didactic sessions. The presentations were very interactive. From learning about nephrology and medicine in general to getting an intro to research and tips about the match and the ERAS application was a well rounded experience. Thank you!

  • Dr. Qaiser S., University College of Medicine and Dentistry

    Done tele-rotation in the month of September, I would like to thank HOPE team for giving me this amazing opportunity. Thing I liked most while working was insight about life and daily 5 minute pep talk before each session. My topic of presentation in didactic session was on management of acute and chronic hyperkalemia. It was a great experience for me to learn new things in internal medicine specially nephrology and the working of American healthcare system.

  • Marvi G., Chandka Medical College, Larkana

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving me a chance to learn under HOPE Telehealth program. It was really a great learning experience which has enhanced my clinical knowledge and improved my interpersonal skills.

  • Dr. Noor Ul F.

    I am writing to you to express my heartiest gratitude for providing me with the wonderful opportunity of doing a telerotation with you. I never knew that nephrology could be this interesting. The step-wise approach to clinical cases that you taught us for their management is a novel thing, and I am going to adapt this wherever I get the residency. It all seemed mathematical and easy. All the colleagues were wonderful and I learned a lot from them as well.

    After taking this telerotation, I realised that if one is determined, we can achieve unparalleled heights in any case, be it a humanitarian one or a career-related one. I have gained so much practical knowledge about managing the renal dysfunctions and associated disorders. This telerotation helped me boost my confidence, and paradoxically, increased my humility as well. I have never done any USCE before, but I am thankful to you as this telerotation introduced me to the US health system and made me aware of how things are done there. The presentations, the case discussions, the hospital rounds, everything was worth our time. I want to thank Dr. Jawad as well, for his cooperation and help. Thanking you again

  • Dr. Usama I., September 2020 Batch

    My name is Usama Irshad and I’m a graduate of King Edward Medical University, Lahore (2018). I participated in the 4-week hybrid HOPE Telemedicine & In-Person Rotation under the mentorship of the preceptor, in the month of September 2020.

    In the uncertain times of a global pandemic, this rotation opportunity provided me with a unique and wonderful chance to brush up on my US clinical skills and to gain valuable insights into the world of Nephrology. The preceptor is kind, patient and understanding and besides mentoring us on clinical knowledge and skills, he also guided us about research methodology, ERAS application process and ways to maximize your chances of a successful match.

    I also presented the topic of “Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease” in one of the didactic sessions which was very well received by my fellow rotating students. The preceptor complimented my presentation for the quality of literature sources used, the succinctness and comprehensiveness of the presentation as well as how confidently and effectively I managed to convey my message across to the listeners while keeping the audience engaged throughout the presentation.

    I finished my rotation with a sense of fulfillment at having learnt wonderful new things about how nephrologists in the US not only take exceptionally good care of patients to improve their quality of life but also adopt a much wider preventive strategy to avoid and slow down the progress of chronic kidney diseases.

    I would like to thank the preceptor and the entire HOPE team for providing me with this rare and wonderful learning experience.

  • Dr. Sana G., August 2020 Batch

    It was an honour rotating with HOPE Telehealth program. I must say I have learnt a lot during this rotation. It was a lifetime experience. It has inspired me to work harder to achieve my goals. I thank you very much for this opportunity and for this positive influence on my career.

    Thank you very much.

    Kindest Regards

  • Dr. Utshab R., September 2020 Batch

    “This is Dr Utshab Roy, an IMG from Bangladesh. Hopefully by the grace of the Lord, I shall be ECFMG certified this year and participate in coming match. When I started the journey for this match, I was unsure about my chances, for not having any USCE or US LOR. It was at this time I got to know about this tele-rotation, like everyone I had my share of doubts in this tele-rotation. However, with time, all my doubts and confusions were cleared as I was getting familiar with the system. I am glad that I found HOPE rotation. I completely felt very comfortable in the environment as all of the rotating students, the coordinator and the preceptor were very much cordial and helpful.

    This rotation also provided with excellent didactic sessions by fellow rotating students. I myself presented 'Nephrolithiasis' which the preceptor liked a lot because of the content.

    I cannot describe in words how considerate and friendly the preceptor is. He listens to everyone and has time for each one of us with individualized advice. Through him, I got to know more about the US healthcare system, the hospital cases and latest practices in the US. I am really grateful to him for this opportunity. At the end, I want to thank everyone related to this rotation for making this possible and helping us to prepare ourselves as better candidates for upcoming match.”
