I have been a big fan of Sid Mukherjee ever since we were om training together. I was a mere intern and he was a Jr. Resident but it is always fun to be in the presence of somebody who is really smart and really humble about it.
He went on to write, "The Emperor of all Maladies" which won the Pulitzer Prize and documents the history of cancer treatment. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend you read it or watch the six hour documentary that Ken Burns made out of it for PBS.
Sid wrote an article for the New York Times Magazine posted this weekend called "The Improvisational Oncologist." It is an informative read that describes some of the new medical adventures we have to take with our patients. If you haven't read it, I would encourage you to do so.
