- Program Description
Second Opinions, Features physicians Jane Liebschutz, Cheryl Dorsey, and David Friedman. Jane Liebschutz is an internist at Boston Medical Center, where she specializes in underserved populations, domestic violence, and addictions. Cheryl Dorsey trained as a pediatrician but has given up clinical practice to serve as director of Public Health Initiatives for Danya Corporation, where she has returned to her pre–medical school passion for health policy. Dorsey represents a small but significant percentage of medical school graduates who end up doing something besides patient care. David Friedman is an ophthalmologist specializing in glaucoma at Dana Center for Preventive Ophthalmology at Johns Hopkins University, where he is assistant professor. Unlike four other members of the group, who have suffered through rocky marriages and subsequent divorces, Friedman manages to combine a high-pressure medical career with a fulfilling family life.
