Couldn't they just silently replace him? Is anyone going to look that closely and be like, "HEY! THAT'S A DIFFERENT TIGER!" Can the average football fan even tell the difference between one tiger and another? I certainly wouldn't be able to.

Once the market is flooded with new grads, hospital administrators will say the same thing about replacing more expensive, employed senior Rad Oncs.

Thank you folks, I'll be here all week.

They SBRT'd his spindle cell sarcoma. I was in town that week and tried to call ahead to see if I could watch the sim, planning or treatment (I'm from Louisiana). No such luck.

If you search Baton Rouge advocate Mike tiger cancer you can find a bunch of stuff like his CT and some pics of them wheeling him in for CT sim and treatment.
HIPAA violation!!!

Well residency is certainly preparing us to deal with serpentine comodo dragon beings. I could see myself looking into lizard or alligator rad onc if I cant find a job in a few years.
