I was going through some final year MD papers of Md Rad oncology

I was going through some final year MD papers of Md Rad oncology and felt the questions were way more than just having to know about radiation machine or technique, kinda like a comprehensive understanding of the entire field of oncology.

Why do they still have so less job opportunities ( acc to many people I’ve asked ) after so much extensive studying. And why do people want to do md medicine and then dm med oncology when in md medicine you’ll only get a fraction of oncology exposure compared to RDT ?

Please someone explain why RDT is so underrated .

scope is severly restricted by no. of active cases and having to work in a tertiary setup.

Radiation onco has tremendous job opp…most of them prac as full fledged oncologists( so as NUCLEAR MED guys) as there are veryyy less no of DM ONCO people…so radiation oncologists’ job prospect is quite Good
