Medical

A medical officer is typically a physician (M.D. or D.O.) whose job is to protect the health and well being of the ship's officers and crew. Other health professionals, such as nurses (R.N. or L.P.N.), field medics, medical technicians, and counselors, assist the ship's medical staff in maintaining the crew's well-being. (When there is no counselor aboard, a medical officer will assume this role.)
