The Medicine perk tree allows you to improve the healing rate of troops and reduce the chances that troops are killed when wounded. In addition, you can significantly reduce the speed penalty that your party is subject to when it has wounded troops. You will need to decide under which circumstances you want your troops to heal faster. For example, level 50 offers a perk which improves healing rate while mobile on the campaign map, and one while stationary. You can also modesty increase your clan memeber fertility or life expectancy, while boosting your resistances to terminal illness. You will need to make sure that no other companion is marked as a surgeon in your clan tab. If they are, they will take on the duties and you won’t advance your own Medicine skill.

Note: Each of the perks listed under a specific level are mutually exclusive. If you invest in one at a particular level, you will never be able to invest in the other at that same level.

Tip: The best way to level the Medicine skill is by ensuring that you have a number of soldiers injured by the end of every battle. You can do this by recruiting weak soldiers and ordering them to charge a superior force, while keeping your best soliders stationary until they are dead or wounded. You can then wait at a settlement to automatically heal the wounded soldiers, thereby increasing your skill.
