The Role of Radiation Therapy in Palliative Care
I am a clinically active academic radiation oncologist specializing in genitourinary malignancies (e.g. prostate and bladder cancer). Born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, I attended the University of Virginia (undergrad, biomedical engineering) and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (medical school). I did residency at the Harvard Radiation Oncology Program in Boston, Massachusetts, where I finished as chief resident. Professional interests include health services research with a special interest in comparative/cost effectiveness, the cost of care, health policy, and the physician workforce. These interests led to an MPH from the Harvard School of Public Health. Other passions include basketball, and I was thrilled to see the 2018 University of Virginia Cavaliers men’s basketball team take home their first national championship.
The School of Medicine of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
