Word: medicine (the field of study)


This word has been blacklisted. No further votes can be made on it.


Medicine, as in "the study of the cause, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of disease or illness" (Wiktionary). The TNG episode "Ethics" mentions a "Klingon Medical Division", so presumably Klingons have some concept of medicine as a field. {Hergh}, based on its canon uses, appears to refer to "medicine" but in the sense of the substances given as a treatment for an illness, not as a field of study.
