What It Takes To Be a Doc

button-brainBe sure to check out Nova's Doctors' Diaries, it is an incredible in-depth look into what it's like to become a doctor, from what it took to get through medical school, how they dealt with cadaver lab, how they survived residencies, and eventually how they became practicing doctors -- or not. The filmmakers began by filming students at Harvard Medical School in 1987, and continued to follow these people throughout their careers today (that's Dr. Luanda Grazette, pictured, she's a cardiologist). Really, really interesting program and you can watch it online.
