Meteoric Rise

Sharad Goyal, MD, professor of radiology at the George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences and chief of the Division of Radiation Oncology at GW Hospital, is taking health policy to task as a recipient of the 2017 Health Policy Fellowship from the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). The fellowship, which is awarded to only two ASTRO members every year, is offered to those who display interest in becoming leaders in health policy.

Goyal, who will collaborate with the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy & Public Administration and the Milken Institute School of Public Health at GW, plans to develop a program focusing on health policy issues in oncology and radiation oncology. He will also look at improving the current coding and billing system, as well as proposing alternative payment models for radiation oncology.
