On his first day at the Sacred Heart Hospital new Intern J.D realizes that being a doctor is a whole lot different and harder than he actually thought. At the end he finds out that people are not always what they seem to be at first, for example Dr Kelso who did act nice is actually a complete Jerk and mean Dr Cox is actually a good guy.
Langsam aber sicher bekommt J.D. Routine bei seiner Arbeit als Assistenzarzt. Probleme gibt es erst, als er sich um einen jungen Patienten namens Will kümmern muss, der unter ernsthaften Lungenproblemen leidet. Jeder von J.D.s Versuchen, den Kettenraucher von seinen Zigaretten abzubringen, schlägt fehl. Unterdessen muss sich Turk um Elliot und Carla kümmern. Die beiden Streithähne geraten immer wieder aneinander, weil jede glaubt, die Bessere zu sein …
J.D, convinced that one of his patients is sick as a result of misconduct on Turk's behalf, questions not only his (Turk's) abilities as a surgeon but their friendship also. Elliot feels disrespected by Dr. Kelso after he refers to her as 'sweetheart' during rounds. In the meantime, J.D. misses his chance to kiss Elliot after being interrupted by Dr. Cox, leaving him 48 hours to get the kiss, in the fear that they will end up as just friends. Will he make it in time?
While J.D. continues to misinterpret Dr. Cox, Elliot discovers parts of her body may have magical healing properties. Turk tries to woo Carla but she may not be as impressed with his gift as he thinks she should be.
J.D. is assigned to look after a difficult, but beautiful, member of Sacred Heart's Board. Her ties to the hospital may not be the only thing that makes it difficult to treat her. Meanwhile Carla freaks out after her mother in injured when she left her to spend the night with Turk.
It's Thanksgiving at Sacred Heart and J.D. is diagnosed with appendicitis. Dr. Cox tries to gain the attention of his former mentor, and former chief of medicine, Dr. Benson. Meanwhile, Elliot tries to become a 'warmer' doctor towards her patients.
J.D. is helping Cox reach a 24hour goal without losing one patient. Trouble is, a woman slipped in the hospital and Kelso demands J.D. give her personal attention so she won't sue. Cox is also busy with his record breaking attempt to give Elliot the attention she craves.

Turk's recently divorced brother comes to stay for the weekend. Meanwhile, an old friend of Kelso, Dr Townhend (Dick Van Dyke) puts a patient's life in jeopardy, causing Kelso to question his obsolete methods as a doctor.
Where Perry talks to his psychiatrist about how Jordan wanted him to bond with her family but instead he preferred to stay home and invite some of the guys at the hospital to his place to watch a game, JD gives him the advice to give Kelso the check-up that the later needs for his insurance and Perry actually listens.
J.D. and Turk play golf on the roof and apparently cause a car accident - could karma be to blame? Jordan reveals a life altering secret to J.D. on the day of the birth of her baby. Carla goes a little more crazy.
JD meets a Dr. that used to be a residence under Cox and he takes his advice on how to deal with Dr. Cox and eventually finds out that the reason Cox hates that Dr. is because he slept with Jordan and that's why they got divorced. While Carla feels that she is not sexy anymore and finds out that it's because she's engaged.
Perry is jealous from the baby taking the attention of Jordan, Elliot tries to sabotage her relation with Paul, Turk and Carla are arguing more after they got engaged, in the middle of all this mess JD feels lonely and starts a weird relation with TCW which stands for Tasty Coma Wife, a wife of a patient in coma that starts to feel alone so goes out with JD but then they decide that she needs to take more time.

Dr. Kelso is on his annual "picking somebody to pick on so that everybody will be scared of him", he picks up Elliot for almost blinding him, almost gets her to quit. Perry discovers that he is the father of Jordan's child, he gets angry and tries to break up with Jordan but she won't let it happen ,then he tells JD that he is not mad at Jordan but he is actually scared from the idea of being a father.
Cox and Kelso still have some issues since Cox punched him a week earlier, and Kelso is still squeaking. Although JD is now starting with the third year; he still needs Dr. Cox's help identifying a patients problem, so the four of them do every single test trying to figure it out. Elliot has some issues with her self confidence, so she buys a car, she meets Sean again, and she goes into a transformation moment that changes both her looks and behavior, so she provides some big help to JD in his patient's problem.

J.D., Elliott und Turk müssen sich einer Horde Assistenzärzte annehmen. Während Elliott und Turk mit eiserner Hand ihre Schäfchen erziehen, versucht J.D. einen eher antiautoritären Ansatz. Doch sein Vorgehen erwirkt genau das Gegenteil: Keiner nimmt ihn ernst. Elliott schlägt J.D. vor, sich von Sean beraten zu lassen. Als Delfin-Trainer hat er Erfahrung mit der Ausbildung von Schutzbefohlenen. Doch J.D. hat nur wenig Lust, sich von seinem Nebenbuhler kritisieren zu lassen …

Doch auch der größte Nichtsnutz kann etwas bewirken, und so stellt Dan Dr. Cox zur Rede und fragt ihn, warum er sich J.D. gegenüber immer unfair verhält. Tatsächlich gelingt es dem Totalversager Dan, den Menschenhasser Cox zur Vernunft zu bringen …

JD is dating Danni -Jordan's sister- and that means spending more time with Cox outside the hospital, and Perry doesn't very much like it. Danni tells JD that she is falling in love with him, but gets mad for the fact that he wasn't even listening, and while Jordan explains that even they are doctors they don't listen. When that happens, both JD and Cox realize that the patient -that they didn't know what's wrong with- actually tried to commit suicide.
The janitor has three personalities. No, actually four, or five. Cox and Carla get satisfied with their conditions. The first is getting old and Carla's marrying someone who goes to the arcade. JD and Elliot get a little bit competitive.
After Elliot gives a patient an orgasm during a pelvic exam and refers to patients 'private areas' using non-medical terms Dr. Kelso taunts her.

JD tries to break up with Danni, but he never broke up with anybody. While Perry -for the first time in a long time- is happy, and that reflects on his behavior in the hospital. Now he has the problem of not having anybody interested in his lessons and teaching because the only way he can teach is through fear, so he will have to "scare them back to him". And Elliot finds out that the whole hospital -except the janitor- is making fun of her new look, and she has to lose it or not worry what they think.

Dr. Ramirez, someone Carla used to like before he left the hospital, is back in town, and Carla goes out with him, not telling Turk.

Dann bekommt Dr. Cox doch noch einen zweiten Anwärter zur Auswahl: Elliott, die in letzter Sekunde von Molly dazu gedrängt wird, sich auch zu bewerben. Die richtige Katastrophe kommt für J.D. jedoch erst noch, als Dr. Cox’ Entscheidung feststeht. Der Job wird zwischen Elliott und J.D. aufgeteilt. Dumm nur, dass die sich gar nicht grün sind.
