The Oncology Podcast, brought to you by oncologynews.com.au, is proud to present the latest episode in our ‘The OJC Meets…’ series in which Professor Eva Segelov and Dr Craig Underhill chat with Dr Steven Vogl, oncologist from New York, USA.
Steve is famous for his iconic introduction ‘Vogl, New York’ and the tough questions he asks presenters at key meetings such as ASCO and San Antonio. This year, with the necessity for Virtual Meetings, we felt Steve’s voice was sorely lacking. He therefore appeared in all of our ESMO special episodes of The Oncology Journal Club.
The Art of Medicine vs The Business of Medicine
In today’s episode, we have a rare, in-depth interview with this truly cult figure in the oncology world. In Steve’s famously acerbic style, we learn more about his long career as a generalist oncologist, have a detailed discussion on trial design and delve deeper into the intricacies of The Art of Medicine vs The Business of Medicine.
In America, we have the best government money can buy and the drug companies can afford it, Steven Vogl.
It’s an honest, insightful and entertaining episode so if you’ve ever wanted to know more about ‘Vogl, New York!’ you are in for a treat with this special interview.
