The St. Albert's Teaching Hospital, considered the worst in the public health system and administrated by the corrupt Dr. Cyrill Kipp, receives a new group of interns: the clumsy Mike Bonnert, whose parents are prominent doctors and forced him to study in medical school; the wolf Dale Dodd, who has come to the hospital to meet women and falls in love for the nurse Cynthia Skyes; Marlon Thomas, who like to play pranks with his mates; Mira Towers, who aims to be a great surgeon; Christine Lee, a very efficient student and promising doctor; and Mitzi Cole, who works as stripper to pay for her medical school and becomes Mike's girlfriend. Leaded by Sarah Calder, the group spends the year learning how to become medical doctors in an environment of lots of confusion.

Intern Academy (2004)
Urban legends portrayed in this movie (most false):
- While it's well documented people have shown up in hospital emergency rooms with various bizarre objects lodged in their rectums (like a little girl's doll as in this movie), the doctor's remark about earlier finding live animals lodged in some patient's rectum is pure folklore.
- Medical students go to bar, find out that one of their female classmates is working as a stripper to pay her way through medical school.
- Students in a biology class are asked to take saliva swabs from their mouths and examine them under microscopes. One female student's swab reveals the presence of sperm from giving oral sex just before class.
- The doctor's remark that the hospital administrator would harvest his kidneys while he's asleep and sell them to Indonesia.
- Inattentive cleaning lady caused death every Friday when she unplugged patients' life support systems to plug in her floor polisher.
- Woman having sex with guy she just met in waiting room. Doctor comes in and informs the couple the woman just tested positive for several STDs.
- Cadavers used in medical colleges were formerly homeless people or unclaimed bodies.
- The exploding colostomy bag.
- a mature woman can't figure out why how she became pregnant because she's too naive about what the sexual act is.
