     Lucy Bennett 

Lucy Bennett (Kerry Bishé)

A medical student at Winston University. She serves as the new narrator for Season 9. She loves horses and believes if they could talk they would be wise.

     Drew Suffin 

Drew Suffin (Michael Mosley)

A medical student at Winston University giving it a second go. He had previously been in jail and was apparently shot by a 12 year old. He describes jail as "cold". He is in a relationship with Denise. He is apparently Dr. Cox's favorite student; at one point Drew was forced to tape a "#1" sign to his chest by Cox, which is shortly replaced by a pink t-shirt saying "#1"
  • The Atoner: He was in jail and did some horrible stuff in his past and he's trying to do right this time.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Denise, bordering on Slap-Slap-Kiss
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Had a breakdown leading to him dropping out of med school, spent time in prison and was shot by a twelve year old apparently.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He often snarks at Denise and at his fellow med students.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Number 1, from Cox.
  • Expy: He's the closest thing we get to seeing a young Dr. Cox.
  • Foil: At the same time, he is the polar opposite of JD in every way. Down to getting the unwanted attention that JD always sought from Dr. Cox. While he has little in the way of emotional needs, he also lacks the sense of empathy that makes JD such a gifted doctor.
  • Formerly Fat: He tells Denise that he used to be a lot heavier than he is now, which really turns her on.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: His current attempt to be a doctor is this for him since he failed the first time.
  • Mysterious Past: We never find out why he was in prison.
  • Older and Wiser: Than the other students.
  • Only Sane Man: Of the med students.
  • Teacher's Pet: Dr. Cox's favorite student, much to Drew's chagrin.
  • Troubled, but Cute: To Denise, anyway. He's had a rough life and she finds him attractive.

     Cole Aaronson 

Cole Aaronson (Dave Franco)

A medical student at Winston University. His family donated a large portion of money to get the new Sacred Heart Hospital built and as such, Cole believes that he can do whatever he wants, as he is "untouchable". While spoiled, arrogant, and immature, he occasionally reveals himself to have a good heart.
