A medic is a general term for a person involved in medicine. On the Continent, not all of them study at academies or universities, there are also a good number of mages, druids, and priests talented in this area (especially priestesses of Melitele). In the countryside, most of the folk do not trust educated doctors. Instead, they seek medical advice at local quacks, charlatans, gammers, and pellars.
Educated non-magic medics are usually called either physician, barber-surgeon or doctor while their magic counterparts tend to go by a healer. Doctors are often calculating men who are trained in field surgery allowing them to treat wounds with double the efficiency or cause grievous wounds with their anatomical knowledge if a need arises.
- In The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Geralt can meet two former medics: Rupert Brandhuber and Gridley.
- In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, aside from the named characters there are three notable medics.
