Private Practice (2007-2013)

What happens if you decide to start your medical practise in Los Angeles after leaving a well-known hospital in Seattle? Private Practice was the continuation of the successful line of captivating medical dramas created by the show's creator, Shonda Rhimes.

Scrubs (2001-2010)

Prior to going off the rails at the end of its run, Scrubs dominated NBC's medical drama lineup in the early 2000s. The Scrubs sitcom, which stars Zach Braff and Donald Faison and has a Scrubs podcast, follows a group of medical interns at Sacred Heart Hospital and, in its early seasons, expertly balanced humour with drama.

Nurse Jackie (2009-2015)

Are you familiar with Nurse Jackie? Younger viewers who grew up in the streaming world are likely to be unfamiliar with what we're talking about. Nevertheless, Nurse Jackie was a must-watch for fans of medical dramas during its seven-season run on Showtime.

St. Elsewhere (1982-1988)

St. Elsewhere need to be discussed as one of the numerous contenders for the title of "Best Drama of the 80s." Every week, this medical drama with a cast of teaching physicians doing miracles in a dilapidated Boston hospital brought tears to my eyes.

Doogie Howser, M.D. (1989-1993)

Imagine entering a hospital and learning that the doctor attending to you is simultaneously preparing for a math exam at his high school the next morning. That was the world of Doogie Howser, M.D., where Neil Patrick Harris rose to fame as the talented 14-year-old who was the youngest licenced doctor in America.

M*A*S*H (1972-1983)

There aren't any other ways to put it but to state that CBS's 11-season run of M*A*S*H was a sensation. M*A*S*H followed a medical unit during the Korean War and was one of the few TV series at the time to be adapted from a motion picture.

Chicago Hope (1994-2000)

Many people are complaining, "Why isn't Chicago Med included here?" Because, despite how excellent that medical drama is, Chicago Hope will help you understand why it was left off.

House (2004-2012)

Dr. Gregory House was conceited, but he had earned it thanks to his aptitude for medicine. In 2004, when House made its Fox debut, it looked to be a medical drama for viewers who were sick of the overly complicated plotlines that were starting to afflict ER.

Grey’s Anatomy (2005-Present)

Some people may observe a "Simpson's Problem" in Grey's Anatomy. While it's true that Grey's Anatomy has lasted a little bit past its prime, it was once one of, if not the best medical drama on television.
