Steven Bochco stated in his interview on the Season One DVD that had he been able to finish the series and write a "final" season (as opposed to ABC's abrupt cancellation of the show in its fourth season), he would have had a season long story arc in which Doogie becomes disillusioned with medicine and in the end, becomes a writer.

In the opening credits a newspaper clipping is shown, stating that Doogie Howser graduated from high school at the age of 12, but in the next newspaper clipping it says that he graduated from Princeton at age 10. It's not possible to graduate from college before graduating high school. This was not changed until season 3. See more »
I loved this show! I used to watch it every week. Unfortunately, I think too many people dismissed "Doogie Howser, M.D." as kids' or teens' faire because of the main character(Doogie) and the premise(boy genius becomes m.d. at age 14).
The truth is, the writing was consistently sharp and witty, and pretty mature. Plus, this program was one of Steven Bochco's creations, as in Steven Bochco, the man behind Hill Street Blues(which won something like, I don't know, 2,000 awards). I'm surprised this last fact alone didn't get Doogie Howser more respect. Oh, well. If you get a chance,definitely check out the reruns.
