Career transitions are normal in academic oncology, oncology practice, and industry and today's oncologists go through a number of 'job' interviews during their post-graduate life and early career. In this episode of Lung Cancer Considered, host Dr. Narjust Florez discusses how to find or transition to that new job in thoracic oncology. Joining the discussion are three lung cancer researchers: Dr. Mark Awad, clinical director of the Thoracic Oncology Group at Dana Farber Cancer Institute, assistant professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a leading researcher in KRAS-mutant NSCLC. Dr. Ana Velazquez, instructor of medicine and thoracic medical oncologist at UCSF and a postdoctoral fellow at the National Clinical Scholars Program. Dr. Velazquez is completing her training and searching for her faculty position. Dr. Jyoti Patel, associate vice for clinical research, a thoracic medical oncologist, and professor of medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago. Dr. Patel is a leader in thoracic oncology, focusing her efforts on the development and evaluation of novel molecular markers and therapeutics for patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
