Dr. Michael Yunes, Division of Radiation Oncology, has been asked to join the American Board of Radiology (ABR) examination committee for lymphoma and leukemia. He will be involved in writing and approving certification exams, as well as participating in the administration of oral board examinations for Radiation Oncology.
Dr. Yunes will also be joining the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria Committee (ACR ACC) for treatment of brain metastases. "It is becoming very important for physicians to be involved in creating treatment guidelines as the government and insurers are placing an increasing significance on national guidelines," states Yunes. "Physician and hospital reimbursement may directly correlate with compliance to nationally published guidelines."
