Student Preception

We have a practice group in Primary Care. The faculty members are below:
Shenggao Han, MD, MPH, FACP
Robert P Snyder, DO
Xianwen Qiao, NP
Sarah Barlock, PA-C
We do both inpatient and outpatient care. In the morning, students and one of the physicians will go to Indiana hospital for rounds around 7 am. Then come to the office for clinic. Sometimes we need to go back to the hospital if there are new hospital admissions during the daytime. Students are also encouraged to participate the round with physicians in Nursing Homes, Personal Care Homes, or patients’ private homes.
Students have the opportunity to dictate H&Ps, discharge summaries, and write progress notes.
We give students autonomy with the ability to evaluate patients and make treatment plans under preceptor supervision. There are a lot of hands on procedures and tests in the office also.
Dr. Han teaches students how to interpret ECGs every other Tuesday. There are also many learning sessions for students such as morning rounds, faculty casual lectures, lunchtime learning, and sometimes industry sponsored evening learning sessions.
After 4-6 weeks of training in Caresalus Internal Medicine, all students should feel confident practicing in Internal medicine as a physician assistant (PA students) or move on to Residency program (medical students).
We welcome students to apply for a rotation with Caresalus Internal Medicine.

Student comments

        Dr. Han, Thank you so much for making such a good rotation! I loved being able to do so much with patients and having the opportunity to see them both in the hospital and in the office. Thank you also for sitting with us and teaching us EKGs and medications. I really appreciate that you took time out of your day to try and teach us something! I learned a lot from you and really enjoyed this rotation. Kim, 1/2015.

     Thank you so much for giving me the privilege to work with you these past several weeks. You were the last doctor that I was with that treated me like practicing PA’s. I feel by your letting us to everything that we would do as a practicing PA helped me learn a lot. I like that you allowed me to do H&P dictations. It was such a good experience. I also feel like I learned more about EKGs here than I did anywhere else. I cannot express in words how thankful I am that I got to do a rotation with your practice.  Rebecca, 1/2015
