It doesn’t matter if you’re a doctor, medical assistant or a student. Medical movies resonate with the public because they force us to think about the worst-case scenarios or put ourselves in someone else’s shoes.

These ten movies made the cut because they are intelligent, exciting, and heart-warming. These are movies we can watch over and over. You may have seen half of our list, or you have only seen none of it – whatever the case, we suggest you pick up one of these ten great medical movies the next time you are at your local video store.

9. Britannia Hospital

Starring: Leonard Rossiter, Graham Crowden, Joan Plowright
Released: 1982


This dark British comedy follows a local hospital preparing for a visit from the Queen Mother. This particularly day is supposed to be documented by a film-maker named Mick Travis. Travis sees firsthand the chaos that envelopes this hospital as horrific experiments take place, a cannibalistic doctor threatens to eat a patient, and countless obstacles threaten to divert the Queen’s visit. This satire examines not only the UK healthcare system but also human nature.
