From the OR to Grey’s Anatomy: A doctor’s path to Hollywood
Michael Metzner, M.D., has always had two passions: art and medicine. But “Never in a million years did I think, ‘Oh, well writing for Grey’s Anatomy, that’s how I can do that.’ Now I’m just like wow, I get to teach people about medicine 15 million people at a time,” he said. “What an amazing impact and what an amazing way to combine my two passions.”
Dr. Metzner, a third-year general surgery resident, sat down with America Revere, a third-year medical student in the Long School of Medicine, to talk about his journey to the world of television on ABC’s award-winning medical drama, Grey’s Anatomy.
