Exhibit at Hardin: Doctors in the Movies

Doctors in the Movies: a Cinematic History is on exhibit at Hardin Library for the Health Sciences through May 13.

The exhibit explains the way the medical profession–especially doctors–have been portrayed in film over the last 80 years.  Doctors and medical institutions have been depicted as respectful and reverential (Men in White,  Dr. Kildare) to questioning and cynical (The Hospital, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest).  The exhibit also explores the way African American and female  doctors have been portrayed in film over the years.Doctors in the Movies was prepared by Mark Onken, Evening Supervisor at Hardin Library for the Health Sciences.
