Angus Leighton is a surgical resident at Angels Memorial Hospital.


He started out as an ER resident at Angels, but later decided that his true passion was in surgery and transferred.



He had a one night stand with a patient who happened to be a stripper, and a few years later she brought her son, whom she believed to be his, to the ER. It turned out he was not the father. He also had an interest in surgical resident Heather Pinkney.


He believes he lives in the shadow of his older brother, Mike, who is something of a superstar. His father's on the board of the hospital, which is how he got into the program.


He is friends with most of the other residents, and seems to be most close with Dr. Mario Savetti.


Will Campbell had Angus perform a surgery with him in the O.R. In the bathroom later, Angus called Campbell a number of insults, but Campbell exited a stall before Angus could end with, "but he's brilliant." Later, after a patient refused care from Campbell because he is black, Angus criticized the patient.[1]


Angus was an ER resident at Angels Memorial Hospital. He is now a surgical resident.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • CBS Bio: Angus, a new resident at Angels, is a former psychology major who remains passionate about understanding the intricacies of human behavior. Angus has terrific instincts but needs the confidence to trust those instincts. Approachable, loyal, and, at times, endearingly wet behind the ears, Angus invests in relationships both with his patients and with his fellow residents. Camaraderie is essential to Angus, and he slowly but surely ushers even the most difficult candidates (like Mario) into the family circle. Angus hails from a medical family—his brother is a superstar ER doctor and his father is on the board at Angels—but every day Angus works hard to be his own man.
  • Angus was a C-student all his life.[2]
