Ohio, US, 16th October 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, David Roesener is an Ohio-based medical physicist. He was recently featured in Inspirery Magazine in which he discussed a wide range of topics on leadership and a career in the area of medical physics. Inspirery Magazine features interviews with entrepreneurs and executives to help inspire those starting out as well as those who have been working successfully for years. It also creates an opportunity for interviewees to act as mentors to entrepreneurs. As a well-known and respected representative in the medical physics arena, David Roesener was a natural choice to be featured in Inspirery Magazine.
During the course of his interview, David Roesener talked about what made him choose a career in medical physics, what some of the most important qualities are in making a successful medical physicist, as well as some of the challenges he faces in his work: “The ever-changing landscape of insurance reimbursement for radiation therapy services is the biggest challenge I face day-to-day. The number of new technology options available to clinicians is also a challenge, as each has its own unique set of benefits and drawbacks that must be carefully considered before implementation.”
David Roesener discussed how he handles rejection: “Rejection is never easy, but you have to learn from every experience. The most important thing to remember about rejection is that it can’t always be your fault. Sometimes it’s out of your control and the only way to know that is by giving everything a try in order to understand what you are good at. The more experience you have, the better because when you get rejected for something you’ve done before you will know how much effort to put into future projects so they don’t meet the same fate! It’s okay if things don’t go your way – just keep trying until they do because not every situation calls for the same approach.”
Regarding what advice he would offer others who are considering a career in medical physics, Mr. David Roesener replied, “Get a broad foundation in the physical sciences and mathematics, since much of what we do relies on an understanding of complex concepts. An internship or two in a clinical setting is also highly recommended to get a feel for the “real world” application of medical physics.”
David Roesener went on to talk about how he deals with fear, about what motivates him professionally and personally, about his hobbies and interests outside of work, and quotes that inspire him. The interviewer also asked, “What does the future hold for Mr. David Roesener of Ohio?” To which David replied, “I would like to continue working in the field of medical physics and help develop new and improved cancer treatments. I would also like to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the materials engineering field.”
