Women Docs

Show Summary

Women Docs is a primetime documentary which examines the real-life experiences of a total of 80 female doctors in cities across the country. It is narrated by Carolyn McCormick and consists of 19 episodes filmed between 2001 and 2002 in different hospitals in New York City, San Francisco, Houston, Chicago, Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Seattle. Each episode profiles several doctors working in a hospital in one of those cities. Female medical practitioners profiled include transplant surgeons, plastic surgeons, obstetrician/gynecologists, specialists of all kinds, and new residents in their first few years. The doctors confront medical issues that range from commonplace, such as childbirth, gallstones, or chronic nosebleeds; to complex, such as open-heart surgery, post-cancer breast reconstruction surgery, and life-or-death emergencies. The pace of the show reflects the hectic and high-energy reality of daily life for each of these doctors and provides insight into how they maintain home and family while coping with extremely demanding careers.
