** DungeonsAndDragons has the fantasy variant, where the Heal skill treats everything. Magic outclasses mundane healings by orders of magnitude in utility, however. The D20 StarWars variant added feats and the like for surgery.
** In the World of Darkness, your Medicine skill functioned under the "bonus to your specialty" rule. HunterTheReckoning had a gynecologist who was treating severe trauma. Somewhat justified, as all doctors have at least a little training in emergencies.
** In West End Games' StarWars version, and WEG games in general, Medicine is a single skill.
** UnknownArmies has an unusual variant where skills are not predefined. A small number of skills are used for universal abilities like Notice and Struggle. All other skills cover a wide aspect of what you are and do, such as a skill like Police Officer reflecting everything about being a police officer that isn't covered by the universal skills. Likely "Medicine" would be considered too vague; you would write in something like "Family Medicine Physician." You would use that skill for everything related to being such a physician, from practicing medicine to understanding paperwork and charts and insurance to figuring out which pharmacist might give you the compound you hope will keep the EldritchAbomination under your basement sedated without asking too many questions.
** CallOfCthulhu has the 'Medicine is one skill' variant.
** Witch Hunter: The Invisible World has two foci for Heal skill, Medicine and Herbalism, with Medicine used to treat wounds and Herbalism to perform medicine. Don't ask.

* Surprisingly common in table top role playing games, period, where Medicine is usually a single skill. Few games actually ask you to specialize like a real doctor would, and many that do simply provide you a bonus within your field rather than treat you as possibly inept outside of it. Examples:
** DungeonsAndDragons has the fantasy variant, where the Heal skill treats everything. Magic outclasses mundane healings by orders of magnitude in utility, however. The D20 StarWars variant added feats and the like for surgery.
** In the World of Darkness, your Medicine skill functioned under the "bonus to your specialty" rule. HunterTheReckoning had a gynecologist who was treating severe trauma. Somewhat justified, as all doctors have at least a little training in emergencies.

* Dr. Michaela Quinn in ''Series/DrQuinnMedicineWoman''. She was a general practiotioner, diagnostician, , surgeon, gynaecologist, obstetrician, paediatrician, epidemiologist, ophthalmologist,... Justified as she was a FrontierDoctor and the only physician in the area. Among the most amazing things she did was sucessfully performing a brain surgery on a child (to be fair, she tried to get a specialist) and a complicated reconstructive plastic surgery. She was often shown studying books and preparing thoroughly for more complicated procedures.

* Literature/{{Discworld}} series:
** Dr "Mossy" Lawn from ''Discworld/NightWatch''. And since he's the only ''good'' doctor around, he seems to go without sleep.
** Slightly subverted in the earlier ''Discworld/FeetOfClay''; due to a lack of ''any'' competent (or trustworthy) doctors in the city, the poisoned Patrician has to rely on horse doctor "Doughnut" Jimmy. When the mob owns most of the racehorses around, a vet has to get ''results''.
** In ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'', the surgical skills of {{The Igor}}s is such that there is a law in Ankh-Morpork that says:
-->"If it takes an Igor to bring you back, you were dead. Briefly dead, it's true, which is why the murderer will be [[GallowsHumor briefly hanged]]."
* Madame Pomfrey from the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series, although having access to magical remedies does help a lot.
** And her training is clearly meant to treat more minor (relatively) injuries. More serious cases get sent to a fully qualified hospital.
* In ''Literature/{{Hurog}}'' averted with Oreg, who can heal wounds with magic, and has the necessary knowledge for treating wounds without using magic - but apparently he's helpless when it comes to psychological problems. He clearly is very fond of Ciarra, who is mute for what is likely psychosomatic reasons, but is never shown to have attempted to do anything about her muteness. Likewise, there's Ciarra's mother, whose brain is damaged by taking herbal drugs; that seems to be beyond Oreg's power, too. And that even though he is Really700YearsOld.
** There are others who ''can'' ... magically mess with people's brains, though whether they use that for ''good'' is a different question.
** Stable master Penrod treats all horse diseases, most of them with one single tincture. He also seems to be competent in horse psychology.
* Aes Sedai in ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series have the magical means to heal almost anything short of a missing limb or death, but Nynaeve has an innate medical mastery that far outstrips even those who have studied the art for decades. Early on she uses healing magic that is far more effective, though proportionately difficult, than that considered standard by the Aes Sedai (because it provides the energy for the healing rather than drawing it from the patient themselves). Her [[AchievementsInIgnorance self-taught method]] is considered inferior by other Aes Sedai until she goes on to cure conditions such as the severing of one's ability to do magic, which was considered impossible even in the nigh-omniscient [[TheTimeOfMyths Age Of Legends]]. In the most recent book of the series (13th as of this writing), she also cured the madness brought on by using [[GenderRestrictedAbility the tainted type of magic]], likewise believed impossible.
* James Nichols in the ''Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo'' series, but then again, he's a doctor of 2000 in the 17th century. His daughter, later in the series, earns almost as much of a "superdoc" reputation among downtime physicians.
* ''Literature/TheHungerGames'': Outside the poorer districts, medicine is far in advance of our own time.

* Mordin-f**king-Solus from ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''. Cures a bio-engineered plague in a mob-controlled Wretched Hive while three factions of gangs battle it out and try to gun their way inside his clinic just for the spite of it. Later goes on to become a chief medical officer aboard the Normandy, helping Commander Shepard save the galaxy, rarely breaking any composure.
** Dr. Chakwas. Despite being an old woman, and the fact that humanity has only had thirty or so years' experience dealing with alien species, she knows how to treat just about any wound on any sort of species. Liara T'Soni (a 106-year-old asari scientist) is impressed at how much she knows about her species' physiology. She later proves how unflappable and determined she is by surviving the destruction of the original ''Normandy'', leaving the Alliance just to serve aboard the illegally-constructed second ''Normandy'', and pulling herself together after being abducted and almost liquified by the Collectors. She flat out tells you that she'll go through any sort of hell to serve at your side. How's that for UndyingLoyalty?
* Doctors in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' are able to casually heal your hp, broken limbs, addictions, radiation poisoning, and sometimes, even perform plastic surgery on your face. In a world [[ScavengerWorld where almost everything is rusting and badly irradiated]].
** Special mention goes to Dr. Usanagi in FalloutNewVegas. In addition to normal medical services, she can also intall a number of cybernetic implants and singlehandedly averts ThereAreNoTherapists.
* Nurse Joy in any ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' game, at least, from a Pokemon's point of view.
* The Medic from ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' has his medigun that can keep a fellow team member alive under heavy bullet rain at such a degree they'll die only via concentrated effort from the opposing team. The "Meet The Medic" video shows that if he has the peace and quiet and equipment for it, he can easily keep a patient conscious and talking without a ''heart''.
* Dr. Baldhead from ''VideoGame/{{Guilty Gear}}'', [[spoiler: better known as Faust,]] claims that he's nearly treated every disease under the sun, and is basically renown for his godlike powers of healing- until he goes insane as a result of [[spoiler:the Assassin's Guild (Zato-One in particular) killing one of his patients]].
* You never meet him, but Dr. Hank's name comes up in ''VideoGame/NightInTheWoods'' as being the source of treatment for all the town's medical, dental, and even therapeutic needs. [[spoiler:[[DeconstructedTrope Then it turns out]] that he's not good at ''any'' of those things, especially as he underestimated just how dangerous Mae's improperly treated depression and dissociation was.]]
