New Amsterdam is a TV medical drama centered on New Amsterdam Hospital in New York City, the oldest public hospital in the US, based on the book Twelve Patients: Life and Death at Bellevue Hospital by Eric Manheimer.


Max Goodwin is hired as the new Medical Director of New Amsterdam, and he is determined to reform the hospital by placing patient care above everything else. He adopts the slogan, "How can I help?". Max's mission is initially put in jeopardy when he is diagnosed with cancer. The series is centered around several doctors at the hospital and their interactions with each other and with their patients. These doctors include: Helen Sharpe head of the Oncology and Hematology Department, Floyd Reynolds head of Cardiac Surgery, Lauren Bloom head of the Emergency Department, Iggy Frome head of the Psychiatry Department, and Vijay Kapoor head of the Neurology Department.


The term DamFam is used by fans to describe themselves.

The majority of fandom's fanworks at AO3 focus on the canon het pairing between Max Goodwin/Helen Sharpe (297 works). The canon femslash pairing of Lauren Bloom/Leyla Shinwari (155 works) is also popular. Iggy Frome/Martin McIntyre is the fandom's only slash pairing, having a total of 15 ship-centric works, being also a canon relationship with Frome and McIntyre as husbands.
