* ''Film/DoctorStrange'' doesn't so much fail the medical boards as it smears its snot all over the surgical team, contaminating everyone. It's gross incompetence like being unmasked in the room or washing one's hands too quickly (a bad scrub) followed by masking up (now your hands are contaminated) followed by gloving up. The movie also apparently has no idea what roles doctors actually have, demonstrates absolutely awful skills when it comes to interacting with patients, and does not seem to understand medical administration. And the violations of HIPPA (patient privacy) border on comical.

** Apparently, [[UnfortunateImplications asexuality doesn't exist in healthy people]] [[note]]despite an estimated seventy ''million'' people being asexual in RealLife[[/note]], is the same thing as absent libido[[note]]it's not--it's the absence of sexual ''attraction'', not the inability to get horny. However, the absence of libido ''can'' be a sign of other medical problems[[/note]] and can be caused by tumors.

** The spinothalamic tract is stated to transmit pain and vibration. It actually transmits pain and temperature.

** The spinothalamic tract is stated to transmit pain and vibration. It actually transmits pain and temperature. Also, no doctor would call the pathways within the spinal cord "nerves" (they're axons or nerve fibers), and severing them would do nothing to prevent Westlake from suffering unbearable pain from his burned ''face''.

* An episode of ''HermansHead'' played into the myth that sugar is 100% fatal to diabetics. Part of the story involved Herman giving a bear a donut and then finding out later that the bear was diabetic and died a short time later.

Part of the story involved Herman giving a bear a donut and then finding out later that the bear was diabetic and died a short time later. Note that even if the myth were true, an animal as large as a bear would need a ''lot'' more sugar than one donut could contain to affect its glucose level significantly.

*** Hell, a first year Psychology student could tell you that. Funnily enough one possible treatment for serious epilepsy and a few other disorders that cause frequent seizures is to sever the corpus callosum (a bundle of white matter that connects both hemispheres of the brain) one of the few occasions in real life medicine where doctors would be happy to cut someone's brain.
