A medic is a general term for a person involved in medicine. On the Continent, not all of them study at academies or universities - there are also a good number of mages, druids and priests talented in this area (especially priestesses of Melitele). In the countryside, most of folk do not trust educated doctors. Instead, they seek medical advice at local quacks, charlatans, gammers and witch doctors.
