The ASTRO Young Physician Workshop proposed for 2018 will consist of one 90 minute session that addresses specific topics most relevant to senior residents and young physicians who are less than 10 years into their practice. The topics from past sessions have include educational presentations on physician reimbursement in our field (specifically how do billing codes translate into dollars), maintenance of certification, how to stay up to date once in practice, work/life balance, seeking out mentorship, negotiating contracts and dealing with difficult scenarios encountered as a more junior physician in a practice. We have had an excellent cohort of speakers in years past and the session has continued to grow and be well-received. Given feedback from previous years and previous topics currently available in virtual meeting format we plan to highlight the following topics: challenging scenarios for junior faculty members, developing mentorship to promote research and professional development, managing the work-life balance and understanding workplace learning models to further education. Future endeavors include partnering with mentorship developments and networking sessions.

Biography:
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.
