What years were you part of the residency program at UTDRO?
Where are you now? What is your area of focus?
Saint John, New Brunswick. Lung, GI, and GU.
What excites/interests you most about your career?
Being able to have a diversified clinical practice including lung SBRT and prostate brachytherapy. I also enjoy collaborating with colleagues in other disciplines in order to create and update our centre’s treatment guidelines and care pathways.
Would you have expected that back when you were a student?
Yes. I always felt that I would like to work in a smaller cancer centre.
How did your time at UTDRO shape your life/career?
It was the people at UTDRO that made my experience and training excellent. My mentors and colleagues at both at the Princess Margaret and Odette Cancer Centres ensured that I left the program with a solid foundation of clinical competencies that made me ready for independent practice. I feel fortunate to have the ability to contact any of the UTDRO faculty for their advice on a challenging case.
What are your words of wisdom for current students?
Stay organized and systematic. Enjoy life as a resident!
