Women Are Surgeons. [Videotape].
National Institutes of Health (DHHS), Bethesda, MD. Office of Science Education.
Television shows like "Chicago Hope" and "ER" show the drama and intensity of the lives of surgeons, but do these shows portray what it is really like? Is it possible to meet the demands of a challenging career and still have a private life? This 24-minute video presents the professional and personal stories of three women surgeons who lead complex lives like the characters on TV. It shows the operating room during real life trauma, orthopedic and cardiac surgeries, and gives a glimpse into the lives that these surgeons lead during their off hours. The colorful poster that accompanies the video displays images and quotes from each of the surgeons. (ASK)
