Dr. Murshed earned his medical degree from Dhaka University in Bangladesh and served as an intern and Medical Officer at Mymenshing Medical College in Bangladesh.  He received a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Clinical Medical Physics at Louisiana State University. He was a Post Graduate Year ("PGY") Resident, Levels II and III, at the Radiation Oncology Department, National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH). He was PGY Chief Resident, Levels IV and V, in Radiation Oncology at the University of Alabama in Birmingham and completed his residency in 2002.

Dr. Murshed earned a PGY IMRT/Gating Fellowship, Level VI, in Radiation Oncology at the MD Anderson Cancer Center from 2002 to 2003.  During the Fellowship he studied the application of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), the latest technique in Radation Oncology. Using IMRT, it may be possible to further limit the exact amount of radiation that is received by normal tissues that are near the tumor, such as salivary glands in Head and Neck cancers, heart in breast cancers, bladder and rectum in prostate caners.  In some situations, this may also allow a higher dose of radiation to be delivered to the tumor, increasing the chance of a cure. Dr. Murshed is one of the only few Radiation Oncologists in the United States who has undergone a formal fellowship training at MD Anderson Cancer Center to obtain this most recent technique for delivering IMRT radiation thrapy and has been using IMRT successfully to treat his patients for last four (4) years.

Jim Cox, Ritusko Komaki, Kian Ang and Deborah Kuban of M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, to name a few. He remains in communication with academics to remain abreast of the most upto-date treatments for his patients. Dr. Murshed is an active participant in national RTOG clincial trials which enables his patients to receive the most upto-date and innovative treatment possible in a community setting in Panama City, FL.
