Look, no one is denying Grey's Anatomy is one of a kind. The ABC hospital drama has stood the test of time with its combination of intense emergency scenarios, interpersonal conflicts, and steamy sex scenes... but it's not the only show with these elements. If you're looking for even more medical content — or if you're preparing for the moment Grey's finally comes to an end — there are a bunch of other medical TV shows like Grey's Anatomydeserving of a spot on your radar.
If you're a fan of the actual medical cases from Grey's, you may enjoy the more raw looks at IRL hospitals in documentaries like Netflix's Lennox Hill or NY Med. If you're more into watching the juicy drama that unfolds on the hospital floors between doctors, something like Private Practice or General Hospital might be more up your alley. If you're looking for something to distract you from the heartbreak constantly dealt out on Grey's, then Scrubs might be your jam — though fair warning, Scrubs can hit you in the feels sometimes too.
Even though Grey's Anatomy has secured a spot as one of the leading medical shows of its time, there are plenty of similar options that you may end up liking even more than Grey's... or at least just as much.
