Dr Kasri Rahim – commencing January 2018
"Through evidence-based medicine, I endeavour to provide outstanding care and treatment to my patients, viewing each and every one as an individual who deserves honesty, respect and the best of my ability."
Even in high school, Kasri knew that he wanted to be an oncologist. His motivation saw him leave his large family in rural Malaysia to study medicine in New Zealand.
After obtaining his medical degree from the University of Otago (NZ) in 2009, Kasri entered the radiation oncology specialist training program which eventually took him to the Royal Adelaide and Lyell McEwin hospitals in South Australia and the Alan Walker Cancer Care Centre Darwin. Following this, Kasri completed a clinical research fellowship to further expand his knowledge of advanced techniques. He joined the GenesisCare team in Western Australia after working as a specialist radiation oncologist and university lecturer in Queensland.
Kasri is a member of many notable societies including the Royal Australian New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR), the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO), the American Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ASTRO), the European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO), the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), the American Society of Brachytherapy (ABS), the Trans-Tasman Radiation Oncology Group (TROG), the Radiosurgery Society (RSS), the Australian and New Zealand Urogenital and Prostate (ANZUP) Cancer Trials Group and the Cooperative Trials Group of Neuro-Oncology (COGNO).
A keen researcher, Kasri has several poster and oral presentations both in Australia and overseas to his credit and is keen to pursue further research activities.
Kasri’s key clinical interests include general radiation oncology, the treatment of gynaecological malignancies, and the use of advanced techniques such as stereotactic body radiation therapy and brachytherapy.
