Medical Dramas are always entertaining in one way or another, whether you are seeing an extremely difficult operation happening right in front of you or watching a love story set in a medical environment. Medical dramas have been with us for many years and they have always been entertaining, but some are also downright garbage, so we are making a list of the best medical shows you could watch for medical dramas.
The Good Doctor
Synopsis: Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore), a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, continues to use his extraordinary medical gifts at St. Bonaventure Hospital’s surgical unit. As his friendships deepen, Shaun works harder than he ever has before as he starts dating, while navigating his environment and relationships to prove to his colleagues that his talents as a surgeon will save lives. The series is from David Shore (“House”), and “Lost” and “Hawaii Five-0” star Daniel Dae Kim.
Synopsis: Hugh Laurie stars as the brilliant, but sarcastic Dr. Gregory House, a maverick physician who is devoid of bedside manner. While his behavior can border on antisocial, Dr. House thrives on the challenge of solving the medical puzzles that other doctors give up on. Together with his hand-picked team of young medical experts, he’ll do whatever it takes in the race against the clock to solve the case. Check out each gripping episode featuring some of TV’s hottest guest stars, including Carmen Electra, Chi McBride, Scott Foley and Sela Ward.

Synopsis: Combining the extraordinary talents of bestselling author Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park) and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television with Peabody, Humanitas, and Emmy®-winning producer John Wells (The West Wing) and Emmy® winner Christopher Chulack (Third Watch), the multiple Emmy® Award-winning ER explores the inner workings of an urban teaching hospital and the critical issues faced by the dedicated physicians and staff of its overburdened emergency room. These medical professionals remain determined to save lives in a place where nothing is taken for granted and nothing is certain…nothing except that another desperate person will be rushed through the emergency room doors in the next moment in need of their help.
Synopsis: ABC’s Scrubs examines the lives of the staff at Sacred Heart. In this unpredictable hospital filled with over-the-top staffers and patients, doctors have learned to survive by relying on each other to face relationships, death, kids, interns, water balloons, and anything else life may throw at them. Around here, humor and tragedy collide as they continually learn that even when you figure out who you are, there’s still more life to navigate and it helps to have good people in your corner…even if they are a bit scattered themselves.
Synopsis: Transplant follows the story of Dr. Bashir “Bash” Hamed (Hamza Haq), a talented doctor and Syrian refugee, who fled his war-torn country with his younger sister, Amira (Sirena Gulamgaus), for a fresh start in Canada. After a truck crashes into the restaurant where he’s been working, Bash earns the chance to practice medicine again by using his field-honed skills to save multiple lives in brilliant fashion, including that of Dr. Jed Bishop (John Hannah), the chief of Emergency Medicine at York Memorial Hospital in Toronto. But Bash is told he’ll need to redo his residency in Emergency Medicine from the bottom and despite his obvious talents, intuition and training, starting over is not an easy road and his life experience is not a perfect match for the strict protocols at York Memorial. Through perseverance he makes inroads, developing camaraderie with his new colleagues, including the driven Dr. Magalie “Mags” LeBlanc (Laurence Leboeuf), the reserved and ambitious surgical resident Dr. June Curtis (Ayisha Issa), easy-going pediatric ER physician Dr. Theo Hunter (Jim Watson), head nurse Claire Malone (Torri Higginson), and even earning the respect of Dr. Wendy Atwater (Linda E. Smith), the department’s second-in-command who runs a very tight ship. Jed Bishop (John Hannah), the team’s demanding, inscrutable boss, looms large and keeps everyone on their toes with a unique compassion and commitment to his staff that also connects them.
