medical drama

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

Marcus Welby, MD ran from 1969 to 1976 (boy am I good with Wikipedia!). I don't know if there was a medical drama before it, but it's the prototype.

Medical advertisers still uses the "Marcus Welby" stereotype to instill immediate confidence in consumers.

I search on Google and from Wikipedia i came to know, City Hospital, which first aired in 1951, is generally considered to be the first medical drama.
