A comedy series about medical interns, which has become one of the most successful shows ever in the history of Russian television and a true cult classic. Thirteen seasons in and it still averages a prime time share of 25% (18-30 demo).
After graduating from college, four young and full of hope medical students are sent to intern at a hospital under the watchful eye of Dr. Andrei Bykov, a vociferous Head of the Therapy Department. A talented doctor who is extremely charismatic, but bad-tempered, sarcastic and intent on turning their lives into a living hell, Dr. Bykov enjoys seeing his interns make mistakes and giving them a hard time for it. The main goal of the interns becomes surviving the hardships of their new job, escaping Dr. Bykov’s ridicule and avoiding extra shifts that he revels in punishing them with. Adding insult to injury are long working hours, crazy patients, and junior medical personnel looking down on them. However, amidst all this they find time for romance, having fun and getting into an unimaginable number of hilarious situations.
