i rented the movie gross anatomy. it was pretty good. is this a fairly accurate depiction of medical school? do people really end up taking speed because the stress and pressure is so intense? what about the teachers coming around and grilling people randomly? can anyone else recommend any decent medical movies other than patch adams

The Doctor is a good, albeit older, movie about a cocky surgeon who is diagnosed with cancer and then sees the workings modern medicine through the eyes of a patient. Definitely worth watching.

Gross Anatomy is an awesome movie! It's actually what got me started on the medical school path.

People who take this drug for anything other than (valid!) clinically diagnosed ADHD are sad. Rotations and residency are going to destroy them because they are incapable of learning without medication.

you know, before I volunteered at the ER in Berkeley, I thought working in the ER was like the TV show. (but not as extreme)

But after about two months at the ER, there had been no 500 car accidents in berkeley nor any 1000 gallon acid spills, and I sadly realized my days would be filled with pushing patients to radiology and wiping down gurneys punctuated by "emergency" drunk homeless people that needed several people's help to be restrained.
