* The Adult Swim flash game ''AmateurSurgeon'' seems to center around this. In the first game, Alan Probe is a humble pizza delivery boy who discovers an incredible knack for surgery - but since he's not an actual doctor he has to practice in his van or apartment and merely improvise his surgical tools. The sequel features a half-senile 70 year old Probe called back in the saddle.

** That being said, McCoy successfully cured a ''rock'' once (a wounded Horta, to be precise). He realized that he was way out of his depth, having no training in silicon-based biology, but covered a phaser wound with plaster--the silcon equivalent of a bandage.

* In ''Literature/OurMutualFriend'', Mr Venus is a taxidermist. In ''Series/Dickensian'', he's apparently the closest Inspector Bucket has to a forensic pathologist.

** When the entire surgical staff came down with the flu, Radar spent most of the episode on the radio and phone, begging everything from pediatricians to psychiatrists to come help out.

** When the entire surgical staff came down with the flu, Radar spent most of the episode on the radio and phone, begging everything from pediatricians to psychiatrists to come help out. Sidney the pychiatrist and the MASH dentist who appears in early episodes have both been roped in to act as emergency surgeons in the OR. Despite her protests, head nurse Hotlips Houlihan has also performed surgical procedures at need.


Added DiffLines:

* In the final episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', Daphne's baby is delivered by a veterinarian. Nobody even suggests that Niles (who must have a medical degree if he is practicing as a psychiatrist) might be a better choice.

* In the final episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', Daphne's baby is delivered by a veterinarian. Nobody even suggests that Niles (who must have a medical degree if he is practicing as a psychiatrist) might be a better choice. [[note]] In an earlier episode, Niles and Frasier attempt to deliver a baby, being the only doctors of any sort on hand for the emergency, and fail miserably; the child is born naturally without their active assistance. It is revealed of Niles that he only opted to specialise in psychiatry after he realised that surgery and the sight of blood made him very queasy indeed.[[/note]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', during an emergency at the hospital, the surgeon is forced to employ the children as honorary doctors on the grounds that they'd once watched a medical drama on TV. Stan, being squeamish, [[{{Squick}} empties his stomach into a patient's incision]].

To a ''very'' limited extent this is justified, as medical doctors in different specialties do all go through basic medical training[[note]]You can't expect an ophthalmologist to conduct a heart or liver transplant, but he/she can be realistically expected to diagnose a heart or epilepsy attack, provide competent first aid, stitch up a wound or assist in a childbirth[[/note]], and some of the skills of one discipline cross over. A bit.[[note]]For example, sewing up a wound is much the same for most mammals, but organs and blood vessels can be very different, so the more one has to muck about, the more a specialist is needed.[[/note]] Oftentimes a subtrope of ClosestThingWeGot, if the dentist's employed in an emergency. Compare BackAlleyDoctor, who may or may not be a licensed practitioner of medicine, but could still save your life if worst comes to worst. Compare/contrast with SuperDoc, when you can actually find a genuine doctor who is more like medicine's answer to the OmnidisciplinaryScientist.
