Medic Career

Base Game University Life

This career has been a work-in-progress for a little over two years now and I think it’s about time I stop nit-picking over it and release it!

Only the Base Game and University Life are needed for this career to work as intended. It was made on Patch 1.69. The career is in English and supports Russian, French, Dutch and Brazilian Portuguese translations. I’ve included translation instructions at the bottom of this post.

The Medic Career is a bit more unique than the other careers I’ve done. It’s got three branches; Surgeon, General Practitioner and Psychiatrist. More on the branch split below.

This career requires the Nraas Careers Mod to show up in game.

The career is based at the Hospital. To change the designated RabbitHole to suit your own needs, I have written a tutorial for you to follow HERE.

The career has 2 levels before the first branch split; the Surgeon branch has a further 5 levels; the General Practitioner has a further 4 levels and the Psychiatrist branch has a further 5 levels. Important information about the branch split: The split branch in this career is a little different so please read this section carefully. There are 2 split branch messages that will come up. After your sim completes the Post Graduate Medic level (Level 2), there will be a split branch message. The options are for Surgeon/Psychiatrist or General Practitioner (GP). This branch will actually be asking you to choose between GP or Surgeon. If you choose GP, you have one level (Junior Doctor) before you get an identical split branch message. This is asking you to pick between GP or Psychiatrist. There is currently no known way to get a different message to show up, so this is a little confusing.

In short, if you want your Sim to become a Psychiatrist, they need to pick GP at the first split and Psychiatrist/Surgeon at the second. To access the Psychiatrist path, they must pick the GP path first.

If you’re still confused, please let me know and I can try to explain it clearer.

There are uniforms for all levels of the career. You can edit career outfits with Patch 1.31 and above so I highly recommend using this feature to set your own uniforms. For your male sims, I recommend THESE coats by spladoum.

There are 16 opportunities with this career, spread across the three branches. Details on the opportunities in this career can be found here.

Your sim may receive a bonus on Snowflake Day if Seasons is installed.
There are no bosses at the top levels.

There are 4 custom tones:
Study Medical Practices, which builds the Logic skill
Comfort Patients, which builds the Charisma skill
Begin Taking Notes, which builds the Writing skill
Research Ailments, which builds the Science skill.

With Ambitions installed, sims may fall ill on a community lot if your sim is present. Your sim receives a boost to job performance if they treat them. Your sim can also be on call some nights.

Career Levels

1. Medical Assistant ~ In your last year at University, it’s been recommended that you take a job as an assistant in the local practise to learn the ropes of the real medical world. As an assistant, you’re going to be keeping the surgery and each consultation room well stocked with instruments to keep the practise running smoothly. You’ll be allowed to sit in on consultations with the doctors and as long as you keep your notes in order, and respect that doctor-patient confidentiality clause, you’ll be ready for your graduation!
§20/hour
Hours: 8.00am – 6.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

2. Post-Graduate Medic ~ University is behind you and you feel a sense of pride in how far you’ve come and what you have accomplished. As a post-graduate, you’re needing to get a feel for a real medical environment beyond the confines of the labs at the University. You’ll shadow one of the doctors on duty and get a feel for the job. If you’re lucky, you may be allowed a patient or two of your own. Good luck!
§25/hour
Hours: 8.00am – 6.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday

Surgeon Branch
3. Ward Doctor ~ Dispensing medicines, changing dressings and taking temperatures. The life of the Ward Doctor is yours. This is the opportunity to work on that bedside manner as you’re in charge of one of the wards at the hospital and it’s important you know the ailments of all your patients and dispense the treatments accordingly. Be prepared for the occasional nervy patient – you’re going to need all the tact and diplomacy you can muster!
§55/hour
Hours: 7.00am – 5.00pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday

4. Surgical Assistant ~ Done are the days of prowling the wards and conversing with the patients. As a Surgical Assistant, you’re in the operating theatre more than you’re out and in your time, you’re seeing a lot of operations take place. Just hand the surgeons the instruments they need, keep them sterilised and you’ll have no problem clawing your way to the next step in your career.
§85/hour
Hours: 9.00am – 6.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

5. Anaesthetist ~ You’ve grown quite accustomed to the operating theatre and as the anaesthetist, your job has become even more vital to the successful running of the hospital. You’ve learnt a lot about the various types of anaesthetic and as such, you’re expected to administer the correct dosage to the patient. Get this wrong, and it’s goodbye medical career.
§120/hour
Hours: 9.00am – 6.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

6. Surgeon ~ Another day, another round of operations, both minor and major. Everything you’ve ever observed in the theatre is going to matter now. You’ve got a team of assistants to help and from time to time, you’ll work with the Head Surgeon during important, rare and special operations. You can’t ever be too careful in this line of work, so make sure you’re well rested before you come into work each day!
§245/hour
Hours: 8.00am – 6.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday

7. Head Surgeon ~ As the Head Surgeon at the hospital, it’s become very important that you never make mistakes! You’ve acquired a loyal, competent team of surgeons, anaesthetists and assistants to work amicable with during your surgeries and as long as you keep up to date with the latest medical journals, you can’t go wrong. So sit back, rest for the weekend and smile. You’ve reached the top of your career and you deserve to take some holiday!
§360/hour
Hours: 11.00am – 8.30pm
Days To Work: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday

General Practitioner Branch
3. Junior Doctor ~ Your first independent role in the surgery! As the Junior doctor, you’re allowed your own patients and you’ve been assigned your own consultation room upstairs, along the corridor and four doors along to the right. It’s given you a taste of the life of a doctor in general practise so you’d better make sure you know your stuff.
§32/hour
Hours: 8.00am – 6.00pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday

4. General Practitioner ~ With your own patients, your appointment book gets filled quickly. You’ve gathered the reputation as a patient and caring doctor and this is something you’ve come to pride. That gentle charismatic charm pays off and with a little more determination on your part, there seems to be no reason why you can’t reach the top eventually. So let’s keep going!
§55/hour
Hours: 8.00am – 5.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday

5. Head Doctor ~ The Head Doctor doesn’t have to work every day. But with the pay rise you’ve just received, it’s not going to matter. The Head Doctor often sees the most patients and routinely refers patients to other, more specialised, doctors for tests and further examinations. Just be sure not to refer all your patients – you do still need some to look after!
§155/hour
Hours: 9.00am – 5.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Friday

6. General Practice Manager ~ The Manager in this particular surgery no longer has to see patients but you still choose to as this is your life’s work. The practice has been the cornerstone of your career and now the running of it is in your hands and your hands alone. As and when you can, you still see patients and your charming demeanour means the surgery has been voted the Most Friendly in the whole SimCity region. Congratulations are in order!
§285/hour
Hours: 9.00am – 4.00pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday

Psychiatrist Branch
3. Junior Doctor ~ Your first independent role in the surgery! As the Junior doctor, you’re allowed your own patients and you’ve been assigned your own consultation room upstairs, along the corridor and four doors along to the right. It’s given you a taste of the life of a doctor in general practise so you’d better make sure you know your stuff.
§32/hour
Hours: 8.00am – 6.00pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday

4. Psychiatry Student ~ The world of psychiatry has fascinated you since your University days and you’ve been granted the opportunity to make this work your own. As a student, you’re going to study the workings of the sim mind and sit in on seminars and workshops from some of the best psychiatrists in SimCity. So crack open those notebooks and start studying again!
§70/hour
Hours: 8.00am – 6.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

5. Junior Psychiatrist ~ With the oak desk, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and plush carpeting, you wonder where you are. Then you realise; you’re in your very own office! As a Junior Psychiatrist, you’ve got your own group of patients and you run seminars every so often to help them cope with their individual issues. However, any particularly complicated issues and you need to refer them to one of your senior colleagues. But at least you’re on the ladder!
§150/hour
Hours: 8.00am – 6.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

6. Psychiatrist ~ You’ve got a loyal group of patients who are delighted with the progress they’ve made. You’ve written some books on the subject of psychiatry but have yet to see them in print. But it is clear – your career is going incredibly well. You organise seminars and workshops for your patients and they never feel alone in their suffering. The practise manager is very pleased with your methods and success rates. Keep up the stellar performance!
§285/hour
Hours: 8.00am – 6.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

7. Psychiatry Practice Manager ~ The practice has been successful and in the last few years, that’s been down to you. You’ve now been offered the opportunity to become the manager and while it means cutting down on the number of patients you can see, nothing stops you from eventually having your own company. The sky is the limit now!
§365/hour
Hours: 9.00am – 5.30pm
Days To Work: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
