  • Overview

    It's not uncommon for someone to change careers after many years in one field. Not too many physicians, however, make the weighty decision to change professions, particularly to become a full-time medical television journalist. But that's exactly the trajectory which Dr. Maria Simbra has set for her career. As a board-certified neurologist transitioning to permanent work as a medical reporter for KDKA-TV, the CBS network station in Pittsburgh, Dr. Simbra has worked very hard to refine her standing as a medical professional. What advice would she give to those of us who have considered, or are still considering, a change in profession? She also talks with host Dr. Mark Nolan Hill about the politics of the newsroom, and how this compares to the politics of medicine.
