Young Dr. Kildare

Young Dr. Kildare is a syndicated medical drama television series which originally ran from September 21, 1972 for a total of 24 episodes. It was a remake of the Richard Chamberlain series Dr. Kildare which in turn was based on fictional doctor characters originally created by author Max Brand in the 1930s and previously used by MGM in a popular film series and radio drama.


The series centers on young intern Dr. James Kildare (Mark Jenkins) working at the fictional large metropolitan "Blair General Hospital" and trying to learn his profession, deal with patients' problems, and win the respect of the senior Dr. Leonard Gillespie (Gary Merrill).
