Dr. Richard Hoppe Awarded ARS Gold Medal
The gold medal is the first ever awarded by the society
Congratulations to Dr. Richard Hoppe! He has been awarded the 2019 inaugural American Radium Society Gold Medal in recognition of his exemplary professionalism, leadership, contributions to the field of medicine and service to the society.
Asked what recieving the award means to him, Dr. Hoppe said, “It is a singular honor to have been chosen as the inaugural recipient of the Gold Medal of the American Radium Society. The society, founded more than century ago, is the first and oldest organization to focus on the interdisciplinary management of cancer, an approach that yields the best outcome for our patients. I am proud to be a member and to have been chosen for this award.”
We're proud to have Dr. Hoppe as a part of our department!
Stanford Radiation Oncology gets a Mini Mercedes
Caution! Student Driver: Toy cars are used to make getting to treatment more fun for children
You may have recently noticed young drivers speeding down the halls of the treatment area in a red sports car. As part of a continued effort to improve the treatment experience of our youngest patients, the pediatric team of Susie Hiniker, MD, Sarah Donaldson, MD, and Michelle Callejas, RN, BSN, acquired a mini Mercedes. Pediatric patients are able to drive this car before or after treatment, giving their days a little bit of fun.
All of this happens under the watchful eye of Michelle, who carries a remote control with override capabilities, for the more reckless drivers.
Daniel Chang, MD, described the cars as a way to “bring a little joy to the kids on their way to getting radiation treatments.” But that's not all, Susie adds, "Rumor has it a resident has even taken this car out for a test drive."
That's the driver that Michelle really needs to keep an eye on!
Four Radiation Oncologists Named in List of "Bay Area's Top Doctors of 2019"
Congratulations to Beth Beadle, MD, Mark Buyyounouski, MD, Maximillian Diehn, MD, and Quynh-Thu Le, MD, who were all named in San Francisco Magazine's 2019 list of the Top Doctors of the Bay Area.
Faced with the tough decision of figuring out which doctors people should trust with their time and their health, San Francisco Magazine decided to turn to a health care research company, Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. In turn, that company asked various doctors and medical groups to nominate their picks for best doctors in the area, themselves excluded. After the company looks through each nominee’s experience, affiliations, board certification, and possible malpractice suits, they narrowed the list of nominees down to 616 doctors. Stanford Department of Radiation Oncology is pleased to have four of our own on the list.
