AllHealthcare's 10 Favorite Medical Movies

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.

1. The Doctor

Starring: William Hurt, Christine Lahti, Elizabeth Perkins
Released: 1991


The Doctor is the the story of a successful MD who has it all. However, his arrogance causes him to treat his patients like machines instead of people. When he is diagnosed with throat cancer, Dr. MacKee is forced to see life from a patient’s point of view. He begins to see medicine in a new light, but that is underscored by drama within his own practice. Based on a memoir, The Doctor shows that there is more to healing than prescribing the right medicines.
