St Albert's is the worst teaching hospital in Canada. Run by administrator Dr Cyrill Kipp (Dan Aykroyd), it only manages to stay open because Kipp sells the hospital's equipment on the black market. With the doctors leaving in droves, it's up to six inexperienced young interns to keep the hospital running - and the patients breathing. Sensing a real opportunity to prove their worth - and have some fun in the process - the students decide to make the most of the opportunity. During on-the-job training provided by Dr Whiteside (Dave Foley), the interns - who include a nerd and a part-time stripper - brave blood, vomit and exploding colostomy bags. Unfortunately between the wild parties down in the morgue and the misplaced patients, it's going to take a miracle to maintain the appearance of order in this medical facility.
