Our names are Trudy Wu and Josh No – nice to meet you! We are both residents in radiation oncology and started this podcast to help learners in all stages of their training master high-yield oncology. You will notice our episodes discuss disease specific workup and management in broad strokes, but also focus on radiation specific pearls. We hope you find this audio resource helpful and convenient in your studies..maybe even chuckle at a few dad jokes along the way.
Trudy and Josh
Trudy is a midwest transplant, currently living on the West Coast (arguably the best coast). During medical school and the beginning years of her residency, she sought a medical podcast dedicated to radiation oncology that could serve as a learning resource during car rides and runs. Thus, the idea of "At the Beam" was born. Trudy distinctly remembers the first time she met Josh on the interview trail, and thought, "oh snap, this guy is so nice AND a dosimetrist!". They quickly became friends (although she mildly judges him for lack of plumbing skills), and have stayed in touch since. Trudy has a special interest in medical education, GI and breast cancer. Outside of clinic, her simple pleasures are iced coffee, sidewalk battles, long runs, and french baking.
Josh was born and raised in NYC, now living a life free of shoveling snow and riding subways. He has an 18+ year history in radiation oncology, where he started working as a file clerk during college before completing school for radiation therapy and then working as a medical dosimetrist. He attended a graduate program for medical physics briefly before pursuing medical school and is a current resident physician. He hopes to one day attend nursing school to complete his cycle through all the roles in the department. He continues on his strong interest in creating educational content in medicine and oncology. His work and friendship with Trudy lies on the strength of their shared opinion of his excellent plumbing skills and he looks forward to helping develop "At the Beam." Outside of medicine, Josh enjoys hanging out with his family, learning what a sidewalk battle is, and watching the Knicks win occasionally.
