About to finish an externship under Dr. jaddou and I have to say, I have learned more in the past three weeks than I did in my last two years of medical school. He is very good with all the students and gives weekly quizzes on different topics too. I feel so prepared for residency as he taught us dosing of different medications already. I would recommend this externship to anyone who doesn't have any USCE because he will teach you from scratch and you will be a pro with the allscripts EMR by the end of it. A great experience overall!!

For all those who are scared of Detroit I may say that this place is lovely and peaceful. Both clinics that I had my rotation at are up-to-date in terms of technologies. Friendly atmosphere is the main reason I never felt intimidated by others. During my one month stay I managed to find good friends. Not only did we work hard 6 days a week but also had our share of fun time.
Do not hesitate to contact the program. Application is easy! I may also share my experience via email if you still have questions!

"Excellent rotation. The best one I have had. Just graduated from medical school, Highly recomended. " -Parth Dave Ross University
"This externship has been a terrific experience. Also, patients who come to the office are respectful to the externs. Finally, I have enjoyed a lot this rotation and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who needs US clinical experience. " -Carlos Zanabria M.D. (2007) From Peru.
"I recently did an externship with Dr. Jaddou. It was the best externship experience I've had in the U.S. He had a very busy practice. He is a faculty at two medical schools. He is a staff at many hospitals and a professor. I am sure a letter of recommendation from him will add a lot of value." -Vineet Pillai M.D. India
"...You get to work in an environment that is truly conducive to learning. The clinical experiences and knowledge that I have gained during this rotation are truly priceless. In my opinion, Dr. Jaddou is not only an amazing clinician but also a caring human being." -Siddique Khatri M.D. (2011) University of Sint Eustastius.
Hello Dr, Jaddou,
I just wanted to thank you for everything again, I appreciate all your help and advice. I learned many things and gained from the experience. Thank you again for the LOR. I hope to keep in touch and please don’t hesitate if you ever need anything from Canada.
Well I am towards the end of my externship with Dr Jaddou; and I can say these four weeks have being simply amazing! We used to take history and examine patients and present the cases to Dr Jaddou. Then he would discuss the differential diagnosis and line of action; the most important part is that we were never scared to go wrong; he always corrected our mistakes in a jocular way.
Dr Jaddou is very knowledgeable and also very approachable; this externship added a lot to my knowledge.
He also used to give us handouts on guidelines for management of common cases like hypertension, cholesterol, diabetes, infectious diseases, and conduct test on the same. I would say this was the most beneficial part of the externship.
Besides we also learnt to perform EKG, urine test, strep test, wart freezing, breathing treatment etc. He also used to let us write prescriptions.
The offices are very systematic and disciplined.
So overall it was a great experience that will certainly help me a lot in the career.
This is my first post ever on this site. I decided to comment since I used other people’s comments to make my decision to sign up for this externship.
One word to describe my experience is AMAZING. Dr. Jaddou was super friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. He was always trying to teach and point out things that were on the boards and things you would use in daily practice. The biggest thing is that even if you were wrong, he wouldn’t make you feel worthless or degrade you, he would kindly correct you and make sure you understood what your mistake was. I was never afraid to ask questions. To reinforce important concepts he provided handouts on common topics such as HTN, HLD, diabetes, and antibiotics that are relevant to Family medicine and for the boards. I absolutely loved these handouts and the tests that came with them.
Like the other post said, I got to take a history, examine the patient, think of diagnosis and treatment plans. I then got to present the case to Dr. Jaddou and he would listen to what you had to say and make corrections if need be. From there I brought the pt to the room where he would talk to them and examine them. I was able to perform EKG, urine tests, strep test, wart freezing, pulmonary function test, pregnancy test, and write prescriptions. I was treated as and felt like a resident.
Out of all the doctors I’ve met, he was literally the only one that made me feel that I should be a doctor. The biggest thing I was able to get from this experience was confidence. When the time comes and I match into a program, I’m going to fly out to Michigan, walk up to his clinic, and give him the biggest hug ever and thank him.
About to finish an externship under Dr. Jaddou and I have to say, I have learnt more in the past three weeks than I did in my last two years of medical school. Dr. Jaddou treats you as an intern and you are in charge of your own patients. He is very good with all the students and gives weekly quizzes on different topics too. I feel so prepared for residency as he taught us dosing of different medications already. I would recommend this externship to anyone who doesn't have any usce because he will teach you from scratch and you will be a pro with the allscripts EMR by the end of it. The office is very busy too, so you learn to manage your time with your patients effectively. A great experience overall!!
