Young Doctors in Love is a 1982 comedy film directed by Garry Marshall. Similar in tone to the Airplane! movies, it spoofs a variety of medical shows (in particular, General Hospital) and has many guest stars from ABC soap operas.

This is the first feature directed by Marshall, as well as his first collaboration with Hector Elizondo. The two became lifelong friends, with Marshall referring to Elizondo as his "lucky charm" and casting him in a role – sometimes minor – in every one of Marshalls films.

An "Airplane!"-style spoof of hospital soap operas: a brilliant young trainee can't stand the sight of blood; a doctor romances the head nurse in order to get the key to the drugs cabinet; there's a mafioso on the loose disguised as a woman - in other words all the usual ingredients present and correct, though in this case the laughs are intentional.
