In a hospital in Moscow works Andrei Bykov, a talented, but rude head of the therapy department. His day usually involves, besides his job, messing with his best friend, the head of venereology department Ivan Kupitman, and making fun of the hospital administrator Anastasiya Kisegach with whom he used to have a relationship. But one day his routine is broken when Kisegach announces that he is now in charge of four interns, including her son. Bykov is extremely reluctant at first, but later decides to make the [[SinkOrSwinMentor best]] of the situation.

''TheInterns'' (Интерны/Interny in Russian) is a Russian sitcom inspired by the likes of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' and ''Series/HouseMD''.

In a hospital in Moscow works Andrei Bykov, a talented, but rude head of the therapy department. His day usually involves, besides his job, messing with his best friend, the head of venereology department Ivan Kupitman, and making fun of the hospital administrator Anastasiya Kisegach with whom he used to have a relationship. But one day his routine is broken when Kisegach announces that he is now in charge of four interns, including her son. Bykov is extremely reluctant at first, but later decides to make the best of the situation.

The interns turn out to be quite unmanageable. Boris Levin is a bespectacled smug know-it-all who graduated with honors and considers himself to be the smartest of the group, almost on par with Bykov, but in reality lacks any sort of experience. Semyon Lobanov is Levin's opposite, a big threatening guy, who has worked in an ambulance, but his theoretical knowledge is almost nonexistent. Gleb Romanenko is Kisegach's son from a previous marriage, who thinks he can use his mother's position to coast through the internship without doing any work. Finally, Varvara Chernous is a shy, spineless and awkward girl whom Bykov instantly dismisses as "not doctor material".

Rounding out the cast is Lyubov Scryabina, the gossipy and optimistic head nurse whom Bykov constantly bosses around.

Later in the show, Levin leaves for America. An American student whom he befriends, Phil Richards, decides to follow his example, and goes to Moscow to study under Bykov. Although fluent in Russian, he is completely disconnected from the reality of life in Russia and the pecularities of Russian medicine, and his good intentions are immediately undercut by Bykov's negativity. Recently, Varvara Chernous also left the show, and was replaced by Polina Ulyanova, a younger student who takes her job very seriously, but lacks any sort of people skills.
