The ASTRO Young Physicians' Workshop has been part of the ASTRO program for the last several years now as a way of bridging the transition from resident to junior faculty/staff, a need that was previously not addressed by other sessions at ASTRO. The programming of the session has changed on a yearly basis to cover a range of topics that are relevant to young (and often mid-late) career physicians. Over the last few years, we have had many leaders in our field discuss topics such as MOC, the economics of healthcare and how radiation oncologists get reimbursed, work-life balance, burnout, how to get more involved in professional societies and research, and participate in panels on navigating difficult situations as a junior physician. This session is always well-received by the audience and has become more interactive and engaged with the audience over time. We hope to continue to have this session available both in person and on the virtual meeting (from which we have also received a lot of positive feedback) to help the junior physicians in our field get the most out of their early careers by increasing their knowledge, competence, and performance on topics that are not covered as comprehensively at other sessions or meetings in our field, but are important to becoming a successful physician in our field.

I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Northwestern in Chicago, IL. My interests have focused on the treatment of gynecologic malignancies and breast cancer. I currently serve as the Director of Brachytherapy for our department and the NRG Principal Investigator for our institution. Within ASTRO I currently serve as a member of the Congressional Relations Subcommittee and the State Captains Initiative. In NRG, I serve as a committee member on both the cervix and breast committees. Throughout my medical career I have been extensively involved with several research endeavors and educational projects. I have undertaken numerous clinical and basic science research projects, with the goal of improving patient care and outcomes. I have aimed to identify patient, treatment and most importantly tumor characteristics associated with increased recurrence risks and to better understand how these same characteristics impact response to treatment and toxicity.
