Word: medicine (the field of study)

Category:

Description/Reason:

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.
