    Profile


    Dr. Mayer is currently on leave until October, 2015.

    After spending several years in companion animal practice, Dr. Monique Mayer completed a 14-month radiation and medical oncology internship at a private referral centre in southern California. That experience led to a two-year radiation oncology residency at Colorado State University where Mayer focused on radiation biology and participated in cutting-edge research involving radiation field hyperthermia therapy and gene therapy.

    In 2004, Mayer completed her Master of Radiological Health degree at CSU and became a board-certified radiation oncologist - one of the few in North America.
