Physician is a position in the Black Company. They act as medics and doctors within the company. Only Croaker was a physician in the proper sense, but he was often assisted by One-Eye on account of his limited knowledge of healing magic. Croaker and One-Eye performed surgeries together, perhaps most notably during the Battle of Charm, when they were assaulted by the forvalaka and rescued by the giant Taken Bonegnasher.

Croaker had a few understudies and apprentices (Pockets and Joro) but they did not seem to be a lasting presence in the Company.
