"The Young Doctors" was an Australian early evening soap opera. The series was set in the fictional Albert Memorial hospital and primarily concerned with romances between younger members of the hospital staff, rather than typical medical issues and procedures. It screened on the Nine Network from Monday, 8 November 1976 until Wednesday, 30 March 1983.
When the series ended after 1396 episodes, it held the record of Australia's longest-running commercial television drama series, which was previously held by Number 96. This was later surpassed by A Country Practice and then Neighbours, which is the current record-holder of any longest-running Australian series.
