Juan Pablo Hoyos, 2022 OSI participant

"The OSI offered invaluable lectures, clinical exposure, and operating room time that significantly aided my progress through MS2 and more importantly during rotations as I am now in the tail end of my 3rd year...I am proud to say that since then I was able to be part of a team [with another OSI participant] that published a paper titled “Novel combination approaches to locoregional and systemic therapy in the management of primary and metastatic liver tumors,” which was a featured article in the December issue of Clinical Advances in Hematology & Oncology. This would not have been possible if it were not for the individuals I met during the OSI program. I am not sure exactly what type of surgical specialty I will ultimately commit to in the future, but I do know surgical oncology is high on my list."
