I joined Hope tele-rotation in the month of June, 2021. Overall, it was a great learning experience. Although in virtual format, it encompassed a variety of sessions throughout the week, including case discussions, ERAS application and residency interview preparation guide, along with power point presentations by fellow doctors. Each session was a unique learning opportunity in itself that added to my clinical knowledge every day. I presented the "diagnostic evaluation of hyponatremia" to fellow doctors that led me to research about the topic and discuss the details in a simplified and understandable way. It boosted up my confidence level too! The preceptor has a gentle and kind attitude towards the students, and engages them actively in the sessions. My big thanks to our preceptor and the team of coordinators for arranging this awesome tele-rotation that has been my best experience so far!

Hello. I am Dr Lubaba Mukhtar. I graduated from King Edward Medical University in 2019 and joined Hope telehealth rotation for the session June, 2021. My experience here with the hope team has been nothing short of extraordinary. I have learnt a lot as a medical professional and as a human being. The preceptor's punctuality, his dedication towards his patients, his motivation to teach and share his knowledge was indeed admirable. The classes were well organized, lectures were delivered brilliantly. I learnt about the American health care system and its many intricacies which is an invaluable lesson. Throughout this rotation, we came across patient cases in the general ward and in the ICU settings. Learning about the presentation and management of such cases was a very knowledgeable asset. I was given the opportunity to present the topic "hypertension in dialysis patients". Doing the presentation itself and listening to the presentations of other fellow doctors during our weekly didactic sessions really helped me hone my skills as a presenter. It helped me build confidence. Each class was interactive, everyone was given an opportunity to ask questions and no one was made to feel left out. This harmonious atmosphere encouraged us to learn more and participate more through healthy competition. There was an overall optimistic and motivational vibe about this rotation which kept us afloat. I would highly recommend hope telehealth rotation to medical professionals aspiring to be physicians in the US.

- Amna Yousaf S., June 2021 Batch
I had the opportunity to rotate with HOPE in June 2021. During my month-long rotation, I gained insight not only about EMR system in the US healthcare but also got to know more about issues such as insurance and quality assessment in the US healthcare system. Being able to understand these topics was the highlight of my rotation since as an IMG we rarely get to have discussions on these topics. I would highly recommend this rotation to anyone wanting to get a deeper insight about the US healthcare system and is interested in life as a doctor in the US.
- Sai Dheeraj G., April to June 2021
In the 3 months of my participation from April to June, I have learnt a great deal from the preceptor, the rotation covered both the fields of Internal Medicine and Nephrology, but more than that.. we learnt a great deal about the intricacies of medical practice in the United States. The Preceptor really encourages us to become better, the sheer daily dose of positivity and motivation we had in this rotation is quite remarkable !!!, the preceptor is a really down to earth, simple, practical and empathetic teacher, all in all this rotation is one the best I have done.
- Maira A., June 2021 Batch
I’m Dr Maira Ahmad from Allama Iqbal Medical College Pakistan. I rotated for the month of June 2021 and I must say that it was a very enriching experience. The cases were discussed in an organized and systematic way to give you a proper view of history taking and management pertaining to each medical problem. The didactic sessions are very knowledgeable to discuss multiple important diseases. I gave a presentation on “Volume Status Management in Hemodialysis Patients; From Art to Science” which was a very unique and interesting topic and definitely added new information to our knowledge. Apart from the clinical knowledge, the unique feature of this rotation is that they provide you wholesome guidance about the US health care system, NRMP match cycle and interviews which is very hard to find anywhere else. The preceptor puts an extra effort to teach all the important and unique cases to everyone, understand each participant and to interact with them so that everyone gets a chance to participate. He has become an inspiration for us all with all that knowledge and positivity. When I joined this rotation, I was very confused about a lot of things but after rotating with them, it’s like I’ve been directed to a simplified pathway to my goal. Thank you so much for all the guidance and the optimism. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and fellow doctors to avail this opportune rotation as fast as they can. Thank you 🙂

Hi! I'm Dr. Justine Carlo Guevarra from the Philippines. I would like to thank the preceptor and the whole staff of Hope Telerotation program for allowing me to grow as a physician. This program lets you develop your clinical skills by presenting interesting cases that you must manage. Aside from that, several talks regarding the whole USMLE matching and process are given to help the applicant. You will also be assigned one case that you will report to your fellow doctors. Definitely, joining this program has helped me develop my clinical skills as a physician, build self-confidence and get some helpful tips for the match. It is good and I'm thinking of doing a second month rotation here!
- Hadia T., June 2021 Batch
It was one of the most profoundly insightful rotations in my experience. Not only as participants did we get in-depth exposure to the US health care system by case discussions and EMR system. But we also built up our diagnostic skills and knowledge reserve by the weekly didactic sessions. Perhaps the most beneficial element of the whole rotation was the regular orientations conducted to help one be more informed and smarter regarding the upcoming Match 2022 and how to prepare for it thoroughly. All in all, a very fruitful rotation. Loved being a part of the HOPE team!

- Rohini N., June 2021 Batch
Hello everyone! I'm Dr. Rohini Nepal. I graduated from Dhaka, Bangladesh, and joined tele rotation with HOPE institute in the month of June 2021. So, this was a really enlightening experience for me; our preceptor would discuss cases with us on a day-to-day basis about the unique cases he saw as a nephrologist in his hospital practice. Not only that, he also assigned us with presentation topics, and I presented on the topic of CKD with diet and a special focus on phosphorus. Apart from that, he also encourages us on a daily basis, he also provides guidance on how we can further advance our career, our application process, and what we should do and what we should not do, and the process of application. So, all in all, it was a really good experience, it was also like a good adventure. So, whoever is willing to hop on to the stream, I would suggest they join in! So, thank you so much.

My experience at HOPE Tele-rotation has been incredible. It is a well-structured program where we got chance to see real hospital cases and have extensive discussion on each case.

I would like to express my gratitude towards whole team of HOPE clinical rotations for being a bridge between us IMGs and US health care system and help us understand the difference. Thank you so much. -Dr. Richa Dhakal Kathmandu, Nepal
