Q: What is it like working as a Chief Radiation Therapist?

Chief Radiation Therapist in Edinburg:
"Rewarding, stimulating,"
Pros: Working with staff and patients to make sure they are satisfied in their daily environment.
Cons: Working with adminstrative personell that do not have a clinical background who have their own vision of how a Cancer Center out-patient clinic should be run. Very frustrating have to "teach" them all about the clinic part of the business when they should already have some idea of what goes on in their department.
