Patch Adams (Robin Williams) is studying to be a doctor at the Medical College of Virginia. He begins to entertain hospital patients at bedside in defiance of the strict rule prohibiting such contact before the third year. His outrageous antics put him in conflict with the stuffy medical establishment, particularly the dean of the med school. Although Patch has high grades, the dean declares him not cut out to be a doctor and accuses him of practicing medicine without a license. Patch's graduation and future as a doctor are at risk because of his firm belief that laughter is contagious.
