We currently offer rotations and tele-rotations in neurology, internal medicine, family medicine, OB/GYN, ophthalmology, pediatrics, and cardiothoracic surgery. If you are interested in a rotation outside of these fields, contact us and we may be able to arrange one for you.
The rotation is primarily practice-based, with some exposure to FutureCare, a nursing home with advanced care. Currently, hospital experience is limited due to COVID-19, however we are also expanding our hospital tele-rotation and in-person rotation capacity in 2021.
A typical AMIQT day in a neurology rotation starts at 9:00 AM with a lecture given by Dr. Stein, Dr. Bernad, or Dr. Haq (in neuro-opthalmology). Student lectures also take place at this time. After the lecture hour from 9-10 AM, students shadow Dr. Bernad between 10 AM and 5 PM at one of his three practices: Monday and Wednesday at Woodbridge, Tuesday and Friday at Alexandria, and Thursday in DC. On Thursdays from 2-3 PM, the GW journal club meets to discuss research. In addition, there may be impromptu lectures throughout the day. For rotations in other specialties, the schedule depends on the preceptor but follows a similar model.
AMIQT students have the option of receiving a personal letter of recommendation, signed by Dr. Bernad, upon completion of a rotation (and dependent on merit.) The letter will have an AMIQT letterhead and will include Dr. Bernad’s qualifications and connection to George Washington University.
The level of interaction with patients is one of AMIQT’s strongest selling points. In neurology rotations, observers interact extensively and directly with patients, take patient histories, develop bedside manner, and are an active part of the process of differential diagnosis and development of treatment plans.
Our standard rotation length is 4 weeks; however, you can book several rotations back-to-back and there may be discounts available.
