Dr. Thomas J. Pugh, Visiting Professor

On Oct. 20, the University of Wisconsin Department of Human Oncology (DHO) had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Thomas J. Pugh, associate professor of radiation oncology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Dr. Pugh, a talented clinician and researcher with special expertise in genitourinary cancer, served as a visiting professor and shared his perspectives with DHO residents and fellows. He delivered a lecture titled “The Demise of Prostate Brachytherapy in the United States: Musings and Opportunities for Resuscitation.” After an engaging two-hour teaching session, Dr. Pugh received an honorary UW T-shirt and cap to help him blend in while attending the home UW football game versus Maryland the following day with several DHO faculty and families. The department thanks Dr. Pugh for his commitment to the discipline of radiation oncology and for his highly informative visit and teaching role at the University of  Wisconsin.
