Showdown

Intensive Care

Best medical professionals in film

Add a list or tag with showdown:doctor

It’s time to celebrate the life-saving, science-positive humans of healthcare we need so much right now. List your top ten movies about medical professionals, whether they take Extreme Measures or use The Gentle Touch. We know that not all movie nurses, doctors and disorderly orderlies are good; there’s plenty of horror to be mined and tension to be Ratched-ed in hospitals. So, from Major “Hot Lips” Houlihan to Madame Pomfrey, any genre is fine, as long as the medical characters in question are interesting (and we’re drawing the line at scientists, so Drs. Strange and Strangelove are out). Get your list in before Visiting Hours are over.
