Daniel Oliver, MDDaniel (Donny) Oliver, MD
Prior to studying medicine at Emory University, Daniel (Donny) Oliver was a professional cellist. During this time, he performed throughout the U.S., toured with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and served on the cello faculty of Emory University and the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. His undergraduate studies were at Rice University and Northwestern University, with graduate studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music. He enjoys long distance running and dog sledding.

Why I chose this residency program: I came to Moffitt/USF for the depth of clinical training under renowned faculty. I found the multidisciplinary setting at a comprehensive cancer center ideal for well-rounded oncologic training. I have a particular interest in cutaneous malignancies; at Moffitt, there is ample research opportunity, support, and mentorship. Also, Davis Island has a beach for dogs!

George Yang, MDGeorge Yang, MD
George was born in Chengdu, China and came with his parents to the US when he was 3. He grew up in Galveston TX and later in Gainesville, FL. He went to Duke University and majored in biology. He then returned to Florida and went to medical school at the USF Morsani College of Medicine in Tampa, where he met his future wife Melinda (a current USF pathology resident). He spends his free time as an amateur beekeeper, growing plants to feed bees, kayaking, and fishing.

Why I chose this residency program: I chose Moffitt as my residency program for a variety of reasons, steeped primarily in what I feel are the most important tenets of a training program. Moffitt provides the requisite clinical volume necessary to become confident in dealing with any scenario that may present itself. Additionally, through a wide network of resources, Moffitt has an abundance of research opportunities to answer and test virtually any hypothesis, whether clinically-oriented or translational. Finally, the camaraderie of the residents, faculty, and staff at Moffitt was visible on many levels, with a level of comfort and inclusion that makes coming to enjoyable.

Zhigang Yuan, MD, PhDZhigang (Mike) Yuan, MD, PhD
 
Dr. Zhigang "Mike" Yuan is a radiation oncology resident, whose research interest focuses on personalized radiation therapy, especially utilizing novel genomic and radiomic biomarkers. He is also interested in bridging cutting edge translational research with novel clinical trial development. His research has been funded with multiple research grants including NCI K05 and a team science award. He has developed a phase I/II trial with his mentor Dr. Yamoah to investigate immunotherapy in high risk Gleason Group 5 prostate cancer.

Why I chose this residency program: I did several years of basic science research at Moffitt Cancer Center before medical school. As a comprehensive cancer center, Moffitt offers a unique opportunity to do cutting-edge translational research. More importantly, the radiation oncology program at Moffitt has not only up-to-date technologies and great faculty but also outstanding research resources including the access to the Total Cancer Care database and active research in genomically-adjusted radiation therapy (GARD) dose. In addition, my family really enjoys living in Tampa Bay.

He attended the University of Florida in Gainesville for his undergraduate studies and the University of South Florida in Tampa for medical school. In his spare time, he enjoys boating in the bays/lakes of Tampa, going to sporting events, and exploring new restaurants.

Why I chose this residency program: I chose USF/Moffitt Cancer Center because of the relationship between the residents and the faculty. The staff prioritizes the learning experience of residents along with providing significant guidance and support in resident-led research. Furthermore, the combination of Moffitt’s high clinical volume and resident autonomy offers superb clinical training for our future careers.

Why I chose this residency program:

Moffitt Cancer Center and its radiation oncology department both have visions that resonate strongly with me. We strive to provide the highest quality of care while continually improving personalized cancer treatment. Every practitioner in this institution demonstrates such devotion to patient care and this represents the type of medicine I have wished to practice.

Jeffrey Peacock, MDJeffrey Peacock, MD
Why I chose this residency program: My relationship with Moffitt began 10 years ago as an undergraduate in the SPARK Research Program. At Moffitt, I was exposed to cutting-edge research combined with compassionate patient care. That, along with my work in breast cancer research with a physician-scientist, shaped my future as a physician. I knew 10 years later as an MS4 student that I wanted to do my away rotations in radiation oncology at Moffitt. I knew it was the perfect place to train as a radiation oncologist. The educational opportunities here are plentiful and readily available. The Moffitt residency program prioritizes education above all else.  The environment is supportive and friendly among residents and faculty alike. Moffitt has enabled me to realize my professional goals. Every day that I walk through the Moffitt entrance as a radiation oncologist in training, I could not be happier with my decision.

Russell Palm, MD
Russell PalmRussell Palm was born in Columbus, Ohio, and grew up in West Virginia.  He attended The College of Wooster as an undergraduate while majoring in neuroscience and then performed research in Alzheimer’s disease at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio in the laboratory of Gemma Casadesus. He completed medical school at the University of Toledo College of Medicine and subsequently a transitional year internship in internal medicine at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. 

Why I chose this residency program: When I was evaluating residency programs, I was encouraged by Moffitt due to their excellent reputation as well as the strong patient volume that comes to a NCI comprehensive cancer center. The work environment is collegial and the quality of life is superb in Florida.  Additionally, there are ample resources and support available to pursue clinical and translational research. In my free time I enjoy exploring the Tampa/St. Pete area including the surrounding beaches, trying new restaurants and breweries, and going to football/hockey games and live concerts.

Austin Sim, MD, JD
Austin SimAustin Sim is originally from Bel Air, Maryland. He attended Washington University in St. Louis where he double majored in Biochemistry and Finance. He completed medical school and law school as the first student in the joint MD/JD program at the University of Virginia before finishing his internship in Internal Medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University. Outside of medicine, he has interests in implementation/legislation of health policy, the science of cooking/baking, and making craft cocktails. 

Why I chose this residency program: I chose Moffitt for residency because of the depth and breadth of opportunities paired with excellent clinical training. As one of the highest volume cancer centers in the country, Moffitt provides rigorous training, but without being overwhelming due to excellent support structures that prioritize education. Additionally, with initiatives like Total Cancer Care, Moffitt offers a wealth of research opportunities. Lastly but no less importantly, the collegiality and camaraderie both within and beyond the department make Moffitt a fun and warm place to train.

Anupam Rishi

Anupam Rishi, MBBS
Anupam was born and raised in India. He attended Calcutta University for medical school and later pursued Residency in Radiation Oncology from Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, and Senior Residency form Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai. During residency he initiated and completed Randomized Study in locally advanced oropharyngeal cancers which received an ASTRO abstract award. Anupam completed a Surgical Intern year at USF before starting his residency at Moffitt. Outside work, Anupam, a former college level Cricket player in India, loves to travel with his wife Papri (a current USF Ob/Gyn resident), and cook recreationally. He has a new-found interest in fishing.

Why I chose this residency program: I chose Moffitt/USF for my residency training as Moffitt offers a very strong research infrastructure, large volume of patients and collaborative environment for both clinical or translational research. Most importantly, the Radiation Oncology department has very cordial environment, and the faculty are very invested in resident well-being and mentorship. In addition, no one can deny beautiful life in Tampa, many vacation-worthy nearby places and beach in Florida. Love the sunshine state!
