Medicine is the science and practice of diagnosing and treating damage that affect the mind and/or body of living beings. It also deals with the prevention of diseases. The chief medical officer was usually responsible of all medical matters on a starship.

Both Nobel Prizes and Ignobel Prizes were awarded for medical achievements. (RIS Bouteina: "Doctor Rihanna")

Societal attitudesEdit


Klingons (at least in the warrior caste) considered medicine as being a shameful profession, since Antaak was disowned when he attended medical school. (ENT: "Affliction", "Divergence")

Klingons had unusually under-developed medical technology and science for a warp-faring species. (RIS Bouteina: "Redshirt Distribution")

Klingon medical schools were considered to be worth attending only for traumatology or for orthopedics and thus these specialities were their best medical specialities. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Off Coverage")


Lyran Starfleet personnel was usually untrusting of Lyran medical practitioners; as such, most non-Lyrans in the Lyran Starfleet served in Starfleet Medical. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Highly Illogical")
