“There is a lot of inter-professional collaboration with doctors, nurses, and physicists to plan and deliver the appropriate treatments…working at a smaller centre, there are many opportunities to meet and build relationships with all my coworkers. I have really enjoyed meeting and developing professional relationships with everyone.”
