    I am in the first year of my PhD in a MD/PhD program and interested in rad onc. What are your thoughts on my questions:

    (1) In terms of time, would a career in rad onc allow sufficient time to do basic science reasearch (specifically as compared to hem/onc and surgical oncology)?

    (2) Is a rad onc career harmonious with basic science research (again comapred to hem/onc and surgical oncology)?
