Often heroic in real life, doctors are also the heroes of some of our favorite TV series. And let’s not forget that reality is at times more dramatic than fiction, especially when you consider the selfless dedication and professionalism that have been demonstrated by healthcare staff in the course of the COVID-19 epidemic. To once again pay homage to their devoted efforts, here is a list of five of the most popular medical series available on streaming.

Grey’s Anatomy


Seasons 1 to 15 available on Netflix US, Season 16 on Hulu.


The longest-running primetime medical drama in the history of American television, “Grey’s Anatomy” tells of the life and times of Meredith Grey, who started out as a young intern at the Seattle Grace Hospital, and her friends and colleagues Cristina Yang, Alex Karev, Izzie Stevens and George O’Malley. Having run for 16 seasons comprising 300 episodes, the drama series has overtaken “ER”, which previously held the record for the longest-running medical series. Launched in 2005 on ABC by Shonda Rhimes, “Grey’s Anatomy” is also available from Amazon Prime Video.

House M.D.

Seasons 1 to 8 (full version) available on Amazon Prime Video and NBC

As gifted as he is cynical, Gregory House is a brilliant doctor, who is also particularly sharp-tongued. With his cutting remarks not only to interns, but also to patients, no one is safe from the rapier wit of Dr. House. The asocial and arrogant medic has to cope with an addiction to Vicodin, the drug he uses to alleviate chronic pain in his right leg, and an endless succession of incredible cases which he attempts to elucidate.


Nurse Jackie

Seasons 1 to 7 available on Netflix

Like “House M.D.”, Nurse Jackie has trouble managing a staggering workload and also has a weakness for Vicodin. Full-time in a hospital emergency service in a rough neighborhood of New York, Jackie has to struggle, often against her own best interests, to ensure proper care for the most difficult cases.

The Good Doctor

Seasons 1 to 3 available on Hulu

An autistic savant but first and foremost a doctor, Shaun Murphy is intent on practicing his craft no matter what the obstacles. With support from a mentor who puts his career in danger, he joins the surgery department of St Bonaventure. Armed only with his dreams of becoming a surgeon, he has to cope with a world that is occasionally hostile. Battling with prejudice and the real challenges life lays before him, Dr. Murphy does all he can to become a good doctor. NVG
