Last Name: Goswami
Position Title: Clinical Psychologist
Job Responsibilities: Combination of Research and Patient Care
About Me/My interests: I am working in the field of psycho-oncology since 1996. In my day to day work I get chance to deal with adult and pediatric freshly diagnosed patients, patient who are on active treatment, patient with advanced illness or referred to palliative care, survivors of childhood cancer and also patients referred from preventive oncology. There is a wide range of work and responsibility.
I enjoy every part of my work but working with cancer survivors and children is interesting and challenging. Working with parents and planning interventions for family support at every sage of illness is very essential and we try to do that in our limited capacity. I work with a psychiatry colleague which gives me comprehensive approach to look at patients problems.
