Dr. Chin chose a career as a radiation oncologist to utilize state-of-the-art technology to deliver precise treatments, while collaborating closely with the multidisciplinary oncology team to improve the lives of patients with cancer.
Dr. Chin was trained in Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance-Guided Adaptive Radiotherapy (ART) during residency. She also trained in gynecologic high-dose rate brachytherapy used to treat cervical/endometrial cancers.
Concurrently with her residency training, Dr. Chin completed a Master of Science in Clinical Investigation (MSCI), which will help her bring advances in clinical research to the clinic.
Dr. Chin likes living in Portland because of the endless greens all around, diverse food options, and beautiful outdoor activities. Outside of work, Dr. Chin enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants, photography, playing badminton, and spending time with her family, dog, and cats.
