Medical Drama
[...] Where doctors save lives and make love, often simultaneously. Our stories, Ripped from the Headlines. Our passions, unbridled. Our cafeteria, eh Make love to me, Ann. I know Im just a surgeon and youre a hotshot upstart administrator, but damn the rules, damn the system, damn our two foot height disparity, I want you.
Jeff!Abed, 'Community'

A series focusing on the practice of medicine in a hospital setting.

Provides an opportunity to educate the public on medical realities (e.g., initial misdiagnosis; correcting fallacies about well-known illnesses; the continued abysmal quality of hospital cafeterias).

Like the Police Procedural or Law Procedural, these are vehicles for short stories.
