Episode 31: Matthew Poppe, M.D. - Residency Director fo Radiation Oncology at UUSOM

Apr 30, 2014

What is Radiation Oncology? How is it different from Diagnostic Radiology? How does a physician face cancer everyday? I interviewed Dr. Matthew Poppe, Residency Director for Radiation Oncology at UUSOM (Huntsman Cancer Hospital). We discuss the rapidly growing field of Radiation Oncology, what a day in the life of a Radiation Oncologist looks like and, when treating patients with cancer on a daily basis, how to “see it as a privilege rather than a burden.”
