* When a person needs someone with more-than-basic knowledge of surgery, but no surgeon is available on hand, a surprisingly good substitute is a ''gynaecologist''. Almost all are obstetricians [[note]]obstetrics deals with pregnancy, labor and post-labor period[[/note]] as well, and they need some extensive surgery skills and knowledge - part of their job is, after all, performing a Caesarean section, and many perform hysterectomies as well.

A gynecologist with enough experience treating endometriosis cases could easily be better at pelvic-organ surgery than many colo-rectal or urological surgeons.

* In the Literature/CiaphasCain novel ''Death or Glory'', the chief medical officer of the scratch company Cain forms from the scattered remnants of various Guard units, PDF units, and street gangs was a vet. He was the only medically trained person they could find.
** Cain himself remarked that the Vet is trained in "All animals. Big or small." This would later become the title of the Vet's autobiography recapping the events of the campaign.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect:'' Despite the fact that Mordin Solus is a [[NotThatKindOfDoctor doctorate]] in genetics and biochemistry he still runs a clinic in [[WretchedHive Omega]]. Justified by the fact that his assistants are more or less medically trained and his knowledge about BizarreAlienBiology is a vital part of what keeps the clinic up and running. (Not to mention that he also occasionally [[BadassBookworm shoots the mercs that try to disturb the clinic's work]]).
** [[spoiler: Choosing him as the tech specialist during the suicide mission is also this and WILL get him killed.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Several training programs are currently in use in the United States to provide veterinarians with human-specific intermediate and advanced aid training, enabling vets to function with greater autonomy and effectiveness in disasters and other mass-casualty situations where human-specific physicians may be overwhelmed.


Added DiffLines:

** It is worth noting that, barring complications, delivering a baby is pretty straightforward. Anyone with even basic first aid training is more than up to the task unless the delivery encounters complications that are not immediately apparent.

* Subverted in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' with regards to Dr. Knox. Introduced as a medical examiner, it seems that later decisions to visit him for treatment are strange[[labelnote:potentially]]Medical examiners in real life need medical degrees anyway, so any given medical examiner is qualified to work on living people as well as the dead. In fact, in many places around the word, medical examiners are basically first trained as ''pathologists'', which is often seen as one of the hardest and most prestigious branches of medicine, even if they mostly work with the dead.[[/quoteblock]]. In fact, Knox had originally been a highly skilled physician but after taking part in medical experiments on captive Ishvalans he felt he was only fit to handle the dead.
