Gideon's Crossing

Gideon's Crossing is an ABC network medical drama series created by Paul Attanasio which aired from October 10, 2000 to April 9, 2001, lasting for one season & 20 episodes. It was loosely based on the experience of real-life physician Jerome Groopman and his book, "The Measure of Our Days."


The series centered on Ben Gideon, the chief of experimental medicine at a prestigious teaching hospital that is often the last hope for critically ill patients.

A skilled healer, Gideon has a somewhat unique bedside manner and he frequently uses rather unorthodox methods to help heal his patients and pass along his passion to the younger generation of physicians.
