Another round of MCAT’s has just come and gone, and the Health Professions Advising office stays busy all the time.

Are you thinking about studying to become a doctor or a nurse? Do you wonder what it’s really like?

One of the many ways to experience this— at least partially— is to watch the films that have been made about Hopkins nurses and doctors, many of whom were still in training at the time.

Meet the nurses and doctors who work in the ER, pediatrics, oncology, and psychiatry, at all hours of the day and night; and be there as they work with their patients to heal them or comfort them.

Hopkins 24/7” is riveting; listening to real patients and watching the staff work with them is extraordinary.


One thought on “A Day in the Life: Nurses and Doctors

  1. Hi, if I wanted to ‘request’ one of the films listed regarding psychiatric nursing for a class @ Homewood in the Psychology Department, is this feasible? (Tried to request it online but said I wasn’t allowed to do so with my JHED ID!) If you could e-mail me back, that would be great, thanks!
    TLHop – You can use the blue Request button in the catalog for most DVDs. This one must be considered Reference or on Reserve for a class. I can interpret your question two ways, so I’ll give you two answers.
    1. You want to watch the program because it relates to a class. Take the DVD number to the AV window on MSEL’s A Level and ask for the DVD. They’ll tell you how long you can borrow it. There are places to view the DVD on A level.
    2. You want the entire class to watch the DVD. You’ll need to have the professor contact AV and arrange to take the DVD to the class, or have the class come in and view the DVD in a viewing room.
    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have more questions.
