Review your favorite medical TV show.
Was it medically accurate? Was it anatomically accurate (that is, do residents actually look like that?)?

Most people don’t necessarily like having to visit hospitals, doctors or have surgery. Despite this fact, television producers continue to hit the ratings jackpot whenever they produce an angst filled series, full of (way-too-attractive-to-be-normal) doctors and a hospital that sees more drama in one hour than your local emergency room sees all year.
I like that type of shows.

Did you know that there was a study done on Grey's Anatomy that studied what people learned through the show? It shows how television can actually teach audiences health messages. The episode they studied in particular was one about a mother with AIDS giving birth to a healthy baby. It is done by the Kaiser Foundation and very interesting!
