The doctors of Seattle Grace Hospital deal with life-or-death consequences on a daily basis—it's in one another that they find comfort, friendship and, at times, more than friendship. Together they're discovering that neither medicine nor relationships can be defined in black and white. Real life only comes in shades of grey.
The series focuses on a group of surgical interns, residents, and the various physicians who serve as their mentors in their professional and personal lives.

(Played by Patrick Dempsey)
He is as the new head of neurosurgery in Seattle Grace Hospital. Shortly after arriving, he meets Meredith Grey and has a drunken one-night stand with her, only to discover that she is a new surgical intern at the hospital where he has recently begun working.
Because of his kind and charming personality, he earns a nickname ”Mcdreamy” between Grey and her friend.


Alex Karev

(played by Justin- Chambers)
He initially makes a poor impression on his fellow interns, and taunts Izzie Stevens when he discovers she used to be a lingerie model.
His relationships with most of his co-workers are rocky. He is also very free with women, and his first lasting relationship is with Izzie Stevens.
However, behind his tough exterior he is actually a very caring man


Miranda Bailey

(played by Chandra Wilson)
Miranda Bailey is straightforward, tough; quick-witted.
She referred to as "The Nazi" by most of the interns, because of the way she treats them. She has "Rules" which must be followed at all times. But underneath she is a compassionate person.


George O'Malley

(Played by T.R. Knight)
He is one of Meredith’s roommates who is also the intern in Seatle Grace hospital.
He earns the nickname "Bambi" because he is petite and sensitive. He is always mocked by Alex.

Izzie Stevens

(Played by Katherine Heigl)
Position: intern
Izzie used to be a lingerie model.
She is "immensely kind" and patient.
She and George move in with Meredith and become best friends.


It dawns on George that Izzie and Meredith treat him more like a sister than, well, a man, and that's troubling for him. But even more troubling for George: that Alex has picked up on George's "sister role" and won't let George forget it. George isn't the only one annoyed by Alex. Izzie feels the brunt of his machismo whenever he calls her "Dr. Model" because of how she earned her way through college and med school, a past that directly conflicts with her present when she gets assigned to a patient (with prostate cancer) who's familiar with her work (in a Bethany Whisper lingerie ad). The prostate patient doesn't want her working on him. Meanwhile, Meredith works with Derek (with a little help from Alex and George) on the case of a construction worker with 6 nails embedded in his head
