Author - Virginia Ruiz Martín

Dr. Ruiz was born in Girona, Spain and wanted to be a doctor since childhood. She studied Medicine at the Free University of Barcelona. I did my fellowship in Radiation Oncology at the Hospital de l'Esperança also in Barcelona. In 2000 she spent three months as a Medical Observer in the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Since 2005 she has worked in Burgos (Spain) and in 2013 moved to a brand new University Hospital of Burgos. She is also mother of two lovely girls and a necessary and convinced "oncoblogger". She has found the whole digital world very enjoyable, e-writing and sharing ideas through social media. "My goal is to bring smart knowledge about radiation oncology to the general public and particularly to cancer patients."
