Fortunately, this is easily remedied.

More importantly, this skill teaches the user how to read medical diagnostic devices. Given that the Third Imperium is a multi-species place, medical kits need to be as accommodating as possible, and by TL10 many cross-species medicines have been created. Still, a lethal dosage to a Vargr may be ineffectual to an Aslan, and so being able to make sense of a medscanner is of highest priority.
Beyond medic-0, medical specialties are as follows:
- Droyne (includes Chirpers)
- [any other minor race not listed here]
- Low Berths -- This is used to safely revive passengers from low passage. This specialization exists so that the GM does not need to determine the species of every low passenger.
Beyond this, everything else is a function of the skill rating. Reprinting the table from Starports, p.15:
- a Paramedic has Medic 1.
- a Doctor has Medic 2, plus Life Sciences (biology) 1.
- a Surgeon has Medic 3.
- a Consultant has Medic 3, plus Life Sciences (Biology) 2.
- Specialist Consultants will have additional skills such as Life Sciences (genetics) and Life Sciences (cybernetics), usually at level 2.
Sidebar: What's in a medikit?
Instead of giving a hard number for how many doses are available, simply roll to see if there are any left after the first. A small individual kit is 10+ on 2d6; a family sized kit is 8+ and a large faculty-size kit is 6+.
- A medical multilab (Cosmopolite, p.106) or portable mediscanner (CSC, p.167)
- Automated external defibrillator (or equivalent)
- Anti-radiation drugs
- Stim drugs (aka caffeine pills)
- Nervous Response Dampeners (aka "a mild sedative")
- Emergency blankets
- Other assorted first aid materials
As a general rule, assume that all kits within the Third Imperium will work on Humaniti (of all types, including Darrians and Zhodani), Vargr, Aslan, and Bwaps. Outside of the Rimward sectors, K'kree and Hivers are uncommon; roll 10+ to see if their biology is accounted for in medkits deeper within the Imperium (all well-stocked hospital facilities will have those, however). Droyne are encountered throughout the Imperium; roll 8+ for them, and for other minor Imperial species.
