IPOS Member Profile: Dr. Amvrine Ganguly, MD (USA)

10 Apr 2023 9:34 AM | John Chagnon (Administrator)

Hi all, I am currently a clinical fellow of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry in the Department of Psychiatry, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NY, USA. After doing my medical school in India I finished my Psychiatry residency from SUNY Downstate Medical Center and then came onto this 1 year clinical fellowship.

My primary interest in Psycho-Oncology grew from a reading of Dr. Viktor Frankl's works, and then was further strengthened by witnessing Dr. William Breitbart's application of Frankl's meaning centered approach to the psychological symptoms in Cancer. At present, I feel Psycho-Oncology is still a nascent field, yet an extremely promising one. The IPOS is serving as a global scaffold for people who would be eager to learn from each other about this fascinating field. Would like to contribute in any way possible. 

Interesting fact: I am an avid reader and a history buff, in particular WW2. Also play amateur guitar.
