Based on the true life of Hunter “Patch” Adams (Robin Williams), a man whom had voluntarily admitted himself into a mental institution. While in the mental institution he finds that he is able to help the patients in the hospital. With a new lease on life he determines to go to medical school to help more people. While in school Patch is receiving one of the highest grades in his class. However his unorthodox ways are not taken lightly by other doctors and officials of the school. While in school Patch founded the Gesundheit Clinic in order to help the people he felt were too poor to get appropriate treatment from the hospitals. Even though the patients and nurses appreciated his work by helping people through humor it was not accepted by the scientific/medical community and thus he came under scrutiny for operating without a medical license.
