Hard Rock Medical

Hard Rock Medical

Set in a fictitious medical school in Northern Ontario, Hard Rock Medical takes viewers into the hearts, minds, and souls of a group of med students whose teachers attempt to educate them--and to persuade them to stay on in the North once they've become doctors. For a northern doctor whose patients are often spread across far-flung and isolated communities, practising medicine here can be a cold, lonely, and sometimes impossible mission that demands more of these neophyte students than humanity and good bedside manner alone can sustain. Hard Rock Medical is produced in partnership with Distinct Features and Carte Blanche Films. Episodes 10-13 of Hard Rock Medical are a Canada-Australia coproduction with Moody Street Productions. The Canadian broadcast of the show began in June 2013 and will continue in early 2014 on TVO and APTN.
