How accurate is the TV show House MD and medical dramas in general compared to real life? I dust off my old DVDs and give it a watch. I explain what’s happening on screen, breaking down the medicine and sharing some of my experiences as a real doctor.

Its been fun revisiting Scrubs, House MD and discovering The Good Doctor, Grey’s Anatomy, The Resident and ER!

I used to love this show as a medical student, so thought I'd revisit it knowing what I know now and see if it holds up!
