    Like medicine inspired song writers they have inspired tv shows writers, movie makers, directors, actors and producers to create shows and movies about hospitals, doctors and their daily lives.

    These tv shows granted a huge and loud success and though most of them were based on the idea of doctors residency and work inside hospitals but each one of them was attractive and unique on it’s own and attracted a wide base of audience who interacted with their favorite doctors in the series. Many of those shows lasted for over a decade and left a huge impact on their audience and admirers as they felt realistic and represented real life in a way or another, even some of the audience were aspired to become doctors as they were deeply connected to these tv shows. They are about 60 shows but we will mention the most successful ones:

    Of course we can’t mention all the great movies that were inspired by doctors and found that their lives and medical miracles are full of action, drama and emotions that had to be transferred to the big screen, we can only mention a few Such as:

    • ( the doctor) starring William Hurt in 1991.

    • The hospital starring George C Scott in 1971
