** While Ratchet was '''the''' medic, he wan't the only one. Pretty early in the series, he forms a friendship with the human Sparkplug, who even got a little staircase to help repair damaged Autobots. Season two of the G1 cartoon also had Hoist, though unlike Ratchet and most Autobot medics, he transforms into a tow truck instead of an ambulance. His bio seems to indicate that his job is more within preventative care rather than repairs, though the cartoon still shows him doing repairs.

[[note]]Although considering he specialises in ''[[MechanicalLifeForms Cybertronian]]'' medicine, [[FridgeBrilliance that probably makes more sense than a vehicle mode intended for helping humans]].[[/note]] His bio seems to indicate that his job is more within preventative care rather than repairs, though the cartoon still shows him doing repairs.

** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', one can find members of the Vigil of Stendarr wandering the roads of Skyrim. They are a ChurchMilitant organization dedicated to hunting down supernatural threats. They also serve as healers, and will happily cure any diseases you may have if you encounter them.

* In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' mythology, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric Divines]] pantheon is heavily associated with healing. Visiting the shrines (or in some cases, the priests) of any of the [[SaintlyChurch Nine Divines]] will cure diseases and heal damaged attributes. In particular, Stendarr, the God of Mercy, Justice, and Compassion, has a strong association with Restoration magic as well as healing in general. The followers of Kynareth, the Goddess of the Air and Heavens, are also renowned for their healing abilities. The blessing from the shrine of Arkay, the God of Life and Death, serves as a minor version as it temporarily fortifies your maximum health.

** Given [[EverythingIsTryingToKillYou the nature of Nirn]], Healers (practitioners of the [[WhiteMagic Restoration]] school of magic) are understandably necessary. They've served in (mostly) non-combat roles in militaries throughout Tamriellic history healing wounded soldiers. However, given that very same nature of the world, they almost always need some means of defending themselves, pushing them closer to {{Combat Medic}}s.

* ''{{Pathfinder}}'' has the traditional divine casters from ''DungeonsAndDragons'' and adds the oracle to the mix. Roughly, the oracle is to the cleric what the sorcerer is to the wizard : a spontaneous caster using the same spell list and with different class features. The mystery of life makes the oracle a great team medic, vastly improving healing spells and giving new healing powers.
