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.

2. Patch Adams

Starring: Robin Williams, Daniel London, Monica Potter, Philip Seymour Hoffman
Released: 1998


Patch Adams is voluntarily committed to a mental institution where he finds that he can help other patients through humor and fun. Vowing to become a doctor when we is discharged, Patch finds medical school disheartening because of the traditional doctor-patient relationship that is preached in the university. His unorthodox methods pit him against many other MDs, but Patch is determined to make a difference in the lives of those less-fortunate. Patch forms the Gesundeit Institute, but is soon brought before the Medical Review Board.
