In 1987, Nova’s cameras began rolling to chronicle the lives of seven young, bright medical students, embarking on the longest and most rigorous endeavor in higher education: the years-long journey to become a doctor. From their first days at Harvard Medical School to the present day, none of them could have predicted what it would take, personally and professionally, to become a member of the medical community. In this final installment, Nova returns one last time to find out what sort of doctors—and people—they have become, on Doctors’ Diaries, a two-part Nova special premiering Tuesday, April 7 and 14.
