Bannerlord Intelligence Perks: Medicine

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 member 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.
