The Emergency Medical Hologram Replacement Program was a holographic replacement for The Doctor created by Tom Paris and Harry Kim.

When The Doctor was transferred to the USS Prometheus in the Alpha Quadrant, Tom Paris was left in charge of sickbay. Unsatisfied with his possible permanent job (with thoughts of The Doctor not returning) and wanting to remain as the helmsman of the USS Voyager, he called upon Harry Kim to create a replacement. The replacement looked exactly like the EMH Mark I, though Paris wanted to include more hair and give it a different personality. When the medical database was entered into the replacement program, the EMHRP started to recite the documentation it had received, starting with Gray's Anatomy Chapter 1. With no speech recognition protocols yet, because Harry had not installed them, the EMHRP would not stop talking, despite Tom yelling at it to "be quiet for a minute". The program eventually overloaded and went off line. The project was considered a failure. (VOY: "Message in a Bottle")
