This week, The Accelerators (Dr. Anna Laucis, Matt Spraker, and Simul Parikh) host Dr. Natalie Ridge (@nataliezumab), a DO radiation oncologist who is finishing training and searching for a job. We again discuss the hot - or not - #RadOnc job market. It depends on who you ask.
We start by discussing the fact that residents across the country face a heterogeneous job search experience as connections are essential to rise to the top of a competitive field.
We then turn to an insidious problem in Radiation Oncology and other medical fields: DO discrimination. We hope leaders in our field consider these experiences in their attempts to build inclusive training programs and practices.
