These Doctors and Nurses Reveal What Grey's Anatomy Has Wrong About Medicine

Doctors DO get ready together in the morning.

The locker-room scenes on Grey’s Anatomy aren’t totally off-the-mark. Doctors do get ready together in the morning in real life.

When doctors arrive at work, they head to the locker room to change into their scrubs. Most of the time, they don’t hang around and chat; they just hop in the locker room to quickly change their clothes, then get on with their day. Sometimes, though, (awkward) conversations with coworkers really do take place.

In the series premiere of Grey’s Anatomy, Dr. George O’Malley awkwardly attempts to flirt with fellow surgical intern, Dr. Meredith Grey, while everyone is getting ready in the locker room. Although hitting on your coworkers is probably inappropriate, some real-life docs would concede that MDs typically aren’t the smoothest operators. YouTube sensation Doctor Mike confessed that, because doctors spend so much time buried in textbooks in medical school, they’re not especially talented when it comes to social interaction—particularly with the opposite sex.
