Medic Programs will typically be integral to pieces of medical equipment, but may be purchased separately. They are typically able to give diagnosis and prescription advice based the sensors that the equipment has installed and (when executing in an Autodoc) able to perform any surgical operation for which it has appropriate tools and supplies. When external to a piece of medical equipment it can give advice and instruction only.
