DEPARTMENT FUN

Therapists on the Windansea Linac win best Halloween costumes and vault theme!  

Moores Cancer Center goes pick for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, October 2015. 

Our physicists and MDs like to hit the waves together before work. This photo by Kevin Moore (PhD) recently made the cover of the Red Journal!

Resident Dr. Kaveh Zakeri takes on UC San Diego medical student and programming research guru Neil Panjwani at Draft Republic during the monthly department-sponsored Research Happy Hour. Kaveh explains "I think it was really nice of me to let the med student win." Rematch tentatively planned for Feb 2016...stay tuned!

Our annual summer department cookout is hosted by the therapists. This was their  published in our monthly department newsletter, the Therapy Times.

Per attending Dr. Jim Murphy's suggestion, the residents started participating in the annual SD Century bike ride in North County in 2014. Fortunately the ride includes a 67-mile "metric century" option for the residents, including this year Dr. Long Pham, Dr. Erin Gillespie, and Dr. Adam Yock (medical physics resident). Jim is not pictured because he had probably already summited the mountain to Ramona on the 100-mile course!

Pictured below is former resident Dr. Danny Simpson with his family and Dr. Mundt at Varhegy (Castle Hill) overlooking the Danube in Budapest after Danny's international rotation in Vienna.

The "Breast Team" meets every few months to discuss recent publications and develops a consensus for our department's approach to the management of breast cancer. This meeting happened to be held at attending Dr. Sanghvi's house. 

Dr. Mell and Dr. Simpson search around for their golf balls while Dr. Gillespie knocks in a par at Carmel Mountain Ranch.

UC San Diego is the team health care provider for the San Diego Charger's professional football team, so every couple years our department sneaks into the UC San Diego box for a game. This one happened to be pre-season against the Seahawks who went on to win the Super Bowl!

Another great pic by our department photographer Dr. Moore of the SD skyline...
