    IMP Class of 2018 Graduate: JC Cheng

    jccWhat attracted you to your field?

    We had little exposure to radiation oncology prior to clerkship, and the idea of using radiation to treat cancer totally blew my mind! In addition, the resilience and the positive outlooks you encounter in radiation oncology is a source of constant inspiration. Besides, name another field that blast cancer with highly precise x-rays!

    What’s next for you?

    I will be heading to Winnipeg (winter is coming) to pursue my residency in radiation oncology. Life has never ceased to surprise me, and I look forward to the adventures that ensue over the next years.

    As you look ahead, what (or who) inspires you?

    Love and encouragement so kindly given by our mentors, teachers, classmates, and patients. Of course, my dearest family and friends, who’ve never stopped supporting me through my journey. As for additional motivations looking ahead, I can finally start paying off my debt!

    Name one thing on your bucket list.

    Sky diving! That’ll take the “step-our-of-your-comfort-zone” idea up a notch for me.
