Medical Humanities uses the humanities, social sciences and the arts to inform and enhance medicine.
Cinemeducation - the use of film in this endeavor - is a part of this field.
This applied field of study has mostly been used for professionalism and end-of-life issues, as you can see in the original article by Dr. Matthew Alexander in Family Medicine in 2002 The Doctor: A Seminal Video for Cinemeducation and later is the book, Cinemeducation: a Comprehensive Guide to Using Film in Medical Education: A Comprehensive Guide to Using Film in Medical Education, by Drs. Matthew Alexander, Anna Pavlov, and Patricia Lenahan.
Another nice database is maintained by the NYU School of Medicine: Literature, Arts, and Medicine Database at NYU School of Medicine.
We (Michael Luther and John Waits) are presenting the humorous side of cinemeducation at the 43rd STFM Annual Spring Conference (“These Are My Muffin Slacks”: Using The Humor of Television’s “Scrubs” In Medical Education)... and have found very few resources on this lighter side.
We've started a list of the medical content for Season 1 of Scrubs... and are hoping others will join in the task of adding to this list.
