Added DiffLines:

* Apollo being the god of healing, his demigod children serve this capacity in ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'', ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'', and ''Literature/TheTrialsOfApollo'', especially Will Solace. Apollo himself is far outclassed by Will, but his other son Asclepius became god of medicine in his own right when he was about Will's age, so he's used to it.

* Saki in ''VideoGame/UncommonTime''. Though in a twist, he's actually a ''[[CastingAShadow dark mage]]'', giving him decent offensive potential as well.

* In ''Manga/{{Aruosumente}}'', Moeran, one of the council members, turns out to have studied medicine at the Shengtalisi, the most prestigious university of his home country. His private rooms still look like those of a doctor, even though he's not actively practising medicine openly.

* Doc Cottle from ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''. A chain-smoking DrJerk, but he gets the job done. In a sea of GreyAndGrayMorality, he was [[DarkHorseCharacter something of a fan favorite]] for his [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold pragmatic perspective on his role]]: he's a doctor, he treats the sick and the injured, nothing else about his patients really matters.

* Eugene Roe and Ralph Spina from ''BandOfBrothers'' are real life examples of the trope. Both men cared very much for the men in their company. Gene was noted by Bill Guarnere as "the best medic we ever had. He was born to be a medic. He took care of us physically, mentally, every way. He was compassionate." Gene was even nominated for a Silver Star for bravery under fire (and received it after the war was over). Note that neither was the TeamMom though.
* PrisonBreak: Doctor Sara Tancredi.

* ''Literature/GenerationKill'' has [=HM2=] "Doc" Bryan, the squad's corpsman. Averts the SquishyWizard part; Bryan doesn't look weaker in any way compared to the others, and he does not hesitate to call out Captain Swetje on his incompetence while others who share the opinion, despite having the opportunity to do it without reprimand, just shuffle their feet. He doesn't delay in engaging the enemy and even gains a kill count; though he's bothered by "feeling nothing" after shooting other human beings, he has no trouble functioning afterward.
