* In ''Film/JasonX'', Jason is finally put down by having his head blown apart. Unfortunately, they had the misfortune of shooting him into an AutoDoc first, and the damaged machine fixed him up [[CameBackStrong better than new]].

* Baymax in ''Disney/BigHero6'' is a big, soft, friendly, and huggable robot medic. He can perform a full medical scan in seconds, has an extensive database of medical procedures (and adds grief counseling) defibrillators in his hands, antibiotic sprays in his fingers, and he can lift a thousand pounds.

* The ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' provides more models of medical droid and more details on their advantages and disadvantages: medical droids can have a near-limitless knowledge of sentient species to let them heal the massive variety of patients in the galaxy, and they often have a precision that only a machine could have during surgery. On the flip side, their bedside manner often left something to be desired and led to patients not trusting a droid to operate on them and very few droids (such as the 21B from ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'') being intelligent enough to deal with unforeseen complications and side effects.

In consequence, they're usually used as assistants to an organic doctor that oversees their activities, in order to select a proper treatment.

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-212 SCP-212 ("The Improver")]]. SCP-212 is a medical device with three large robotic arms. When anyone gets too close to it it grabs them and starts performing bizarre surgical procedures on them.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1300 SCP-1300 ("Liquid Surgeon")]]. SCP-1300 looks like a dentist's chair. When someone sits down in it, it injects a paralytic drug and a local anesthetic and starts performing surgery on them. It removes everything foreign to the body (possibly including something the patient needs, like a pacemaker).
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-2048 SCP-2048 ("The Virtual World")]]. SCP-2048-1 includes a robotic autosurgical suite that can remove a person's brain and replace it with a spongy substance that emulates brain activity as well as a wireless transmitter that allows two-way communication. The suite then replaces the removed section of cranium and eliminates all evidence of the surgery.

** The short story "Procrustes" introduces Carlos Wu's upgraded autodoc which uses {{nanomachines}} and is basically a DeusExMachina. Given sufficient time, raw material, and the right programming, this device can cure ANYTHING: punctures, infections, old age at the genetic level, even [[spoiler:the total destruction of Beowulf Shaffer's body, leaving only a decapitated head]]. After an upgrade by two Protectors, the device also becomes capable of patching plot holes: [[spoiler:The {{Literature/Ringworld}} becomes self-repairing and gets Quantum II Hyperdrive, which now works inside a gravity well. This particular autodoc can even revert a protector back into a breeder.]]

** Introduced in the short story, "The Ethics of Madness". Small desk autodocs can't repair injuries, but they can test blood samples and inject needed vitamins and drugs, provided that they're pre-supplied with them (the small ones are explicitly intended for personal use; an autodoc for a diabetic would have a supply of insulin that's renewed periodically by a service techician, but one for a non-diabetic wouldn't). There are larger public autodocs that have a much broader variety of supplies. Eventually, the ARM develops military-grade portable autodocs equipped with boosterspice, the longevity drug.

* The Franchise/{{Pokemon}} games do this with the Healing Machine in Pokemon Centers. There are even stand-alone consoles in ''[[VideoGame/PokemonColosseum Colosseum]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/PokemonXDGaleOfDarkness XD]]''.

** In ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas New Vegas]]'', Caesar heads up the Legion, an explicitly technophobic group of tribes and gangs, not using anything more advanced than basic rifles, a motorized grinding wheel, and at least one [[ChainsawGood chainsaw]]. If you actually get into Caesar's tent, he [[StrawHypocrite has an autodoc mounted to the foot of his bed]].
** In the ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' DLC "Dead Money", you find Christine trapped inside one modified to perform surgery on her vocal chords to make her sound like someone else. Several other Auto-Docs scattered around the Sierra Madre, and since you're stuck inside, hardcore players will be relying on them for health, limb repair, and relief of hunger, thirst, and exhaustion.
** In New Vegas's Old World Blues DLC, the Courier gets an Auto Doc that has a personality and is the best physician in game, able to add implants, replace organs, give psychological evaluations (and by extension of that feature CURE NEARSIGHTEDNESS for [[BlindWithoutEm Four Eye'd]] players), standard check ups, perform plastic surgery and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers give haircuts]]. If he's left on, with a good Courier he finds a way to turn off the Y-17 Trauma Harnesses, freeing the corpses trapped inside several years after the game ends.
