Scrubs Wiki

Dr. Ed Dhandapani was an intern at Sacred Heart Hospital until he was fired for his laziness and unwillingness to learn and study.

Ed talking to J.D. ("My Jerks")

Ed didn't seem to really have the drive to be a doctor at Sacred Heart Hospital, but was there anyway. Instead of filling out patient reports, he chatted online about Lost or played on his cell phone. He failed to help a patient who was crashing. However, he was quite excellent at starting new trends and catch phrases. Ed doesn't care about furthering his medical knowledge other than what is necessary, which bothers Perry, who hates Ed for his laziness (though Ed apparently is still smart enough that he does "better than most" of the other new interns despite his slacking). ("My ABC's") Later, giving Ed a chance to redeem himself, Perry makes him study a book on heart disorders. Perry fires Ed two days later for failing to name the heart disorder he describes, which proves Ed didn't bother to complete the assignment. ("My Lawyer's in Love")
