    #30 Hematologist/Oncologist Interview - End of Life, Breaking Bad News, and Lifestyle

    Amy Mackenzie, MD, grew up in Los Angeles but fled the scene in 1994 after college in rural New York to live and work in Japan for 3 years. She decided to pursue medicine at that time and headed back to the states to finish up pre-med work while working for the Japanese Consulate in Los Angeles. She then moved to Philadelphia in 2000 to work and apply to med school, ultimately enrolling at MCP-Hahnemann (now Drexel). After a year as part-time faculty at the med school, she went on to 3 years of IM residency at Temple and subsequently worked as a hospitalist at Fox Chase for a year between residency and fellowship. She completed heme/onc fellowship at Jefferson in 2013 and then became the first oncologist to do a geriatrics fellowship at Jefferson. She has 4 board certifications: internal medicine, hematology, oncology and geriatrics. She is an associate professor and a fellow of the American College of Physicians, actively participates in an older adults task force with ASCO (Amercian Society of Clinical Oncology) and sits on the board of the newly formed American Academy of Geriatric Oncology.

Sam Bostian ,

So insightful!

It’s so cool to dive into the lives of the people I wish to become! I feel like I’ve gained so much experience and knowledge just by listening. This podcast is so criminally underrated. It’s such high quality in sound, picture, and content. It’s so insightful and I’m so incredibly thankful for this podcast.

CrossFit Johnathan ,

I would “Highley” recommend

I have been watching Zach’s YouTube videos for a while now and when he announced he was creating a podcast I was so excited! This is exactly what I hoped it would be. Being in grad school right now to become a doctor in occupational therapy this really helps reignite some of the passion and excitement for why I am doing what I’m doing that sometimes gets lost in all the day today stress and grind. This podcast is definitely worth a listen and I would highley recommend it! Zach you are awesome!
