Meredith Grey and her colleagues are interns at Seattle Grace Hospital, one of the toughest surgical residency programmes in the country, where on-the-job training can be a matter of life and death. Experienced doctors guide the interns – aiming to ensure the new crew will not break down, regardless of how gruelling the work becomes. To achieve this they make the interns face the most difficult and strenuous activities. This group of innocent surgeons soon learns they must take care with every decision and action they make, both professionally and personally. They are reminded that they’re the only ones who understand each other’s hardships, empathise with each other’s fears, and offer support to each other when they have no one else to turn to. Grey's Anatomy reveals that neither medicine nor relationships can be defined in black and white – real life only comes in shades of grey.

The interns are guided by an established team of doctors who are determined to either shape them into skilled surgeons or break them: Miranda Bailey, a senior resident responsible for training them, is so tough that she's nicknamed "The Nazi"; Derek Shepherd is the flirtatious but very capable surgeon who shares a forbidden but undeniable sexual attraction with Meredith; Preston Burke's arrogance is second only to his skill with a scalpel. Overseeing them all is Dr. Richard Webber, Seattle Grace's paternal, but no-nonsense chief of surgery.
