The fictional St. Alberts Hospital (actually the real but abandoned Charles Camsell hospital in Edmonton, Alberta) is in trouble and its best doctors are abandoning their posts. This leaves six young interns on medicine`s frontline to learn by doing, which is probably not the way you want to learn medicine. There are surgical slip-ups, lost patients, hot-tub parties in physiotherapy and mayhem in the morgue. If that doesn’t keep you interested, there`s also sex in the halls to help keep morale high in what might be the worst hospital in the world. Intern Academy, which began life as Whitecoats, focuses on the young and up-and-coming; not just the interns but, by extension, the actors playing them. While the cast includes a veritable Who’s Who of Northernstars, it is the less well-known names that are the focus of the movie. As the trailer says: “They’re young. They’re smart. They’re almost doctors… Just pray to God that they don’t operate on you.”
