We love hearing about our visitor’s connections to their preceptors, especially when it involves them receiving mentorship that reaches beyond the clinical experience. One example of this is the advice Dr. G. gave to Phillip, a medical student from Nigeria this past September. Phillip participated in a Cardiology rotation Dr. G, a former FMG. To learn more about the guidance Dr. G gave to Phillip continue reading below.

Here’s Phillip’s Story…

Teacher, Colleague, Friend

My experience at Presence St. Francis, in Evanston, was an unforgettable one. It’s the best experience I’ve ever had with an attending. My supervising physician, Dr. G, is the best teacher I’ve ever been taught by. He had so much passion and treated us like his colleagues, friends even.

The coolest part was that Dr. G was a Foreign Medical Graduate. Because of his vast experience, he was able to share tips on how to get into and survive residency in the U.S.!

I used to worry about learning how to interpret EKGs. Then I met Dr G., he made it look so simple. During the clinical experience I learned a lot about medicine and life in general. The rest of the team I worked with was great. The nurses and other staff members at the hospital made me feel at home. It was a blissful experience for me. I’m so glad I chose to participate in this program.
