Medicine: the 5 favorite series of Rennes students – Rennes

    They are not always very realistic, but Rennes medical students love them. The impact of these fictions on the choice of studies and career would even be “very significant” according to the thesis defended in Rennes in 2021 by Thomas Stefani, entitled Medical television series: opinion of medical students in Rennes. Its panel goes from the 2nd to the 6th year of studies. And if 80% think that the series do not make it possible to understand the functioning of a French hospital, 89% believe that they can provide examples of ethical issues.

    (Dr House)

    The hero is ultra-cynical, his diagnostic approach is capillotracted, and his collaborators search the homes of their patients to try to understand the causes of their illness. In short, nothing to do with the normal daily life of the Rennes University Hospital. Maybe that’s why the students like so much “the main character (…) complex, (…) the medical investigations in the Sherlock Holmes way”…

    (Good Doctor)

    41% of students watched Good Doctor, which features a young surgical intern with Asperger’s Syndrome. Extremely intelligent, however, he has trouble communicating and has to deal with prejudice. If the most popular and numerous series are American, this may be explained by their anteriority.
