Red Beard (Akahige) is a towering masterpiece of Janapese film -- many believe it is Kurosawa's finest work. That it deals with Medicine is an extra plus.
From Netflix: "A testament to the goodness of humankind, Akira Kurosawa's Red Beard (Akahige) chronicles the tumultuous relationship between an arrogant young doctor and a compassionate clinic director. Toshiro Mifune, in his last role for Kurosawa, gives a powerhouse performance as the dignified yet passionate director who guides his embittered intern to maturity, teaching him to appreciate the lives of his destitute patients."
