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. 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.

Fantastic Depiction of Medical Training

By GCProfessor

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS NOVA: Doctors' Diaries DVD:

I use this documentary in my course of medicine and health care. It provides invaluable insight into the trials and triumphs of medical training. I highly recommend it to all students of health care and medicine, pre-med students, med students, and anyone looking for a glimpse into medical training.

Excellent! Must see for all Pre Med's

Comments about PBS NOVA: Doctors' Diaries DVD:

Excellent documentary. Very few scientific studies or documentaries are 21 years long. Being a dentist, I found it liberating to know that all of us in the medical profession pay a heavy price for being a doctor.

Definitely worth 20 Years of work

By Honor-Bon Roy

Comments about PBS NOVA: Doctors' Diaries DVD:

Better than any medical documentary or probably most fictional shows. An in depth ( as deep as 2 hours would allow) look at how the life of medical students change as they progress through the medical caste system. I am not sure whether or not it was the intent of the editors, but the film seems to focus on how the lives of these students were negatively impacted, making an effort to point out the many broken personal lives, unhappy spouses and the impressive number of divorces.

As a medical student about to begin my quest into first year, nothing has scared me more than the thought of this documentary becoming my life.

I think the take-home message here is either don't go into medicine or avoid anything but working in R.O.A.D. and for big pharm.

A Journey in Medicine

By NonRandomGuy

from Boston

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS NOVA: Doctors' Diaries DVD:

A fantastic documentary of the long path to become a physician. It shows the challenges, successes, disappointments and maturation that occurs from first being a student to becoming senior staff. This is reality TV at its best. Nova has updated, repackaged but heavily shortened here in this third segment, content that was included in the first two segments of this series shown years earlier. Check your local library to see if those installments are available because they show much more of the saga than what has been condensed for release in this most recent edition.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Doctors' Diaries DVD:

This program inspired me to call the local medical school and make arrangements to donate my body after my death to help educate bright, young medical students such as these.
