My name is Andre Goy. I'm the chair at John Theurer Cancer Center and Division Chief of the Lymphoma program as well as a Physician in Chief Oncology for Hackensack Meridian Health. When I was in medical school, I was very interested in lab research and transitional aspect of things and innovation. And I wanted to specialty that will be a dynamic specialty that was when I first see a patient I'm very curious about and I want to understand who they are and I think it helps me a lot down the road when I need to take them somewhere. Sometimes it's easy to the treatment, and it's very helpful. You also need to understand the dynamics of the ecosystem, the patient what's happening in their family and their surroundings, because it also helps you take into account when you make treatment decisions. I think that if you've done this for so long to develop almost like a sixth sense of where you have to do, but I always say think outside the box. You need to be really confident in what you do to be able to go out of your comfort zone, but that's the beauty of it. That's what makes medicine hard and that's what wakes me up every morning because I keep going. That's why whenever he came the deputy chair and then the chair, people thought it was gonna stop. Same patient. I'm not gonna stop seeing patients actually think that every administrator should see patient and there's nothing better than saving someone's life.
