The Role of a Chief Medical Officer

LT Erika Stroem, Second Officer & Chief Counsellor

Having just done an exam for medical, it asked what it means to be Chief Medical Officer, so I had to do a poem on it.

I am Chief of Medical
On board a Starfleet ship.
Come and see my sick-bay,
It will be worth the trip.

My doctors and my nurses
Will care for all your pain.
They will not leave your side
Until you’re right again.

But I’m not like any old Doctor …
As I am based in space,
So it’s not just humans I see to.
I deal with any race.

I come across weird diseases
That can really drive me insane,
And I need to find an antidote
To make the crew better again.

Captain's ill? But Captain's stubborn
"“Don’t worry, I’m on my way,
So go to bed and do as you’re told
'Cause I out-rank you today."

In simple, I deal with all sorts—
Healing, surgery, concocter,
Or should I make it easier…
Damn it … I’m a Doctor.
