i just got finished watching the PBS show produced by NOVA about being a doctor. the show did not meet my expectations, and i was rather disappointed. i thought that the show would go through each year of medical school and analyze the daily life of each year. i thought that it would show the first day of med school, how the students felt, how scared and excited they were. i thought that it would show how many hours a day students studied, and how they struggled with the vast amount of material. how medical students reacted the night before exams, how many classes they took each year, how the students dealt with the pressure and stress of school. i thought that this show would show a more in-depth look of LIFE IN medical school. instead, what i saw was the life of one student, what he did outside of medical school and how he dealt with students who were from a different economic background than he was. the show went rather quickly through each year and failed to provide an in depth look at the daily life of the typical medical student as he or she progressed through each year of school. i found it to be a more personal "life history" story of someone who went to medical school, skipped the medical school part and went directly to his life as a doctor: his wedding, how many wives he had, his house, and what he looked like getting dressed. it showed very little of life as AN ACTUAL MEDICAL STUDENT. i am be way off on my review of this program, but i was rather disappointed about the program. does anyone have any thoughts about this show? who knows, may be the next shows in the series will be better. please post your comments. i am interested to hear what others have to say.
