The University of Great Strabain has gathered knowledge from across the known world and developed speciality schools, or guilds, that deal with specialist fields such as anthropology, exploration and the deeper study of magics. One such area of speciality is the Royal School of Medicine who take on a yearly number of medics, doctors and even gifted sawbones to train as Chirurgeons. Chirurgeons are practitioners of the comparatively young science of medicine. They provide basic medical treatment and perform surgery in order to relieve common minor ailments such as boils, splinters, and minor wounds. As their training progresses they are able to re-attach recently severed limbs, treat unusual poisons and disease from foreign climes. They are respected members of the community and can be an invaluable aid to wounded soldiers, guilds folk and similar. As they progress through their careers many are called to court or to the noble house of the land where they become appointed Physicians who gain great prestige and often spend the rest of their careers residing with and dealing solely with that family.
“The description I would give of a Chirurgeon is a professional who practices medicine, which is concerned with promoting, maintaining or restoring health through the study, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, injury, and other physical and mental impairments. They may focus their practice on certain disease categories, types of patients, or methods of treatment or assume responsibility for the provision of continuing and comprehensive medical care to individuals, families, and communities. Medical practice properly requires both a detailed knowledge of the academic disciplines (such as anatomy and physiology) underlying diseases and their treatment; toxicology and Immunology and also a decent competence in its applied practice; the art or craft of medicine. Both the role of the physician and the meaning of the word itself vary around the Basin. Degrees and other qualifications vary widely, but there are some common elements, such as medical ethics requiring that physicians show consideration, compassion, and benevolence for their patients.”– Dr Spirinial Fronds
