Product Description:

Discover what it takes to become a true member of the medical tribe as the filmmakers at NOVA follow a group of seven Harvard Medical School students from their first day of classes through graduation and beyond. Shot over the course of 21 years, DOCTOR'S DIARIES begins in 1987, as a group of bright young students prepare to meet the challenges of the world's premier medical school. From classes to clinical training through internship, residency, marriage, and divorce, these seven individuals struggle to balance their work and studies while starting families and, eventually, launching their careers. Candid interviews and revealing footage highlight the sacrifices that medical students make to accomplish their goals, and provide a revealing glimpse into their personal and professional lives.

Product Description:

Over the past 21 years, NOVA has followed a group of seven doctors from their first day at Harvard Medical School in 1987. All young, bright, and accomplished, none of them could have predicted what it would take, personally and professionally, to become a member of the medical tribe. NOVA's cameras have been there through the difficult years of classes and clinical training, internship and residency, marriage and divorce—documenting the trials and tribulations as these individuals struggled to become doctors and balance time at work and at home. Candid, in-depth interviews have given viewers a real sense of what each person has to deal with day in and day out since they made the decision to practice medicine. In this special two-part program, NOVA returns one last time to get an update on the kind of doctors—and people—they have become.
