Compatible with Patch 1.82 ~ No Update Needed

Change Log:
~ 1st December 2021 ~
  • Fixed interactions so they will show up on all computers. Additionally, the interactions will now take a minimum of 60 minutes to complete.
  • The career now requires the XML Injector to work. This means the career no longer has its own script file so please delete the old script and package files before updating to this one!
  • Fixed Tuning Errors.
~ 24th August 2021 ~ Updated to add Russian translation.

"Becoming a Medic is a long, studious road but to get this far, you've proven you have dedication. In this job, you'll have many choices to make about your career path but if you knuckle down, work hard and observe you'll have no trouble deciding what aspect of the medical profession is for you." ~ Join text

I've always enjoyed playing the Doctor career from Get To Work but I still felt like I needed more variety for medical careers. I created the Medic Career for Sims 3 and it has branches for General Practitioner (GP), Surgeon and Psychiatrist. So I've converted it to Sims 4!

What Makes It Different?
The Medic Career has some degree requirements for joining the career and for future promotions (more below).

You Will Need:
  • Scumbumbo's XML Injector ~ This allows the career to not need its own script file. The XML Injector loads the script for Paid Time Off and for the custom interactions. Don’t worry; the XML Injector doesn’t add anything to your game, it just allows this mod to work as intended.

Technical Details
The career has 2 levels before branching out to one of three branches: GP, which has an additional 4 levels; Psychiatrist, which has an additional 4 levels; and Surgeon, which has an additional 5 levels. There are 7 work from home assignments available for the first two levels should you wish to use them and there are no daily tasks. There’s also 6 work from home assignments for the Surgeon branch, 5 for the Psychiatrist branch and 6 for the GP branch. Many of these assignments require the Doctor Interaction mod by Cepzid. It’s a lovely little mod and I highly recommend grabbing it. There are no daily tasks.
Finally, there are uniforms for all levels!



The career requires Get To Work and Discover University.

Custom Interactions
In order to provide a better experience when your Sims are working from home, I created a small set of 7 custom interactions on the computer, which are used as Work From Home tasks or promotion requirements. These can be found under the Career/Medical Journal menu on the computer. These are:
- Organise Patient Records
- Read Patient's Surgical Notes
- Read Psychiatric Papers
- Research New Treatments
- Research Symptoms
- Update Patient Records
- Video Call With Patient

Translations
The career is presently in:
~ English (by me)
~ Russian (by Origamika Group)

Degree Requirements
I've never been a fan of career jumps from degrees so I rarely use them in my game. I am, however, a fan of including degrees as promotion requirements so that's what I've done here. The Medic Career actually requires a Biology Degree to get into it at all. It will not show up in the job listings unless your Sim has a Biology degree. Additionally, in order to beyond the first level of the Psychiatry branch, your Sim will also need a Psychology degree. Finally, to progress beyond Level 5 of the Surgeon branch, your Sim will need a Distinguished Biology degree. This means if your Sim only gains a normal Biology degree, they won't be able to reach the top of the Surgeon branch. This makes the career a little more complex for your Sims!



Career Details: 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 practice 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 practice 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 ~ 5.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Objectives: Reach Level 2 Logic Skill
Reach Level 3 Writing Skill
Reach Level 2 Research & Debate Skill

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 ~ 5.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday
Objectives: Reach Level 2 Logic Skill
Reach Level 3 Writing Skill

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 practice so you’d better make sure you know your stuff.
§32/hour
Hours: 8.00am ~ 6.00pm
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
Objectives: Reach Level 4 Logic Skill

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!

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!

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!

So crack open those notebooks and start studying again!

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!

Hours: 8.00am ~ 6.00pm

The practice manager is very pleased with your methods and success rates. Keep up the stellar performance!

The sky is the limit now!

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!

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.

Known Issues


For reasons known only to Sims 4, in spite of completing all work from home tasks, sometimes the boss is disappointed with the work done. I don't actually know why this happens but, as you can see with the notifications above, you get the money. Just the notification is a bit off. This is a known issue and as yet, there's no known solution.

Have you read the description at all? I cover this in there:

The Medic Career actually requires a Biology Degree to get into it at all. It will not show up in the job listings unless your Sim has a Biology degree.


So you won't see the career unless your Sim has a Biology degree.

Try with a base game computer/laptop. I've yet to update with career to make sure all other computers are included. So have a try with a base game one and let me know if that works!

Okay. I'll take a look in the next day or two and see what's going on.
In the meantime, try redownloading the career. Sometimes the download can be a bit weird and that's always possible.

Can you also add Medicine Degree to the list?

I think it is added to University - Custom Degrees by Zero's Sims 4 Mods&Comics, even though the descriptions doesn't say about that degree.
If ^ isn't correct, please correct me.

Also, all of your mods/careers/etc work with latest November patch, right?

I'm pretty sure there is a Medicine degree in that mod. I'll check and I've got an update planned to add compatibility to Zer0's degrees anyway, so of course I will!

And yes, my mods are compatible with the latest patch

I really don't know what I'm doing wrong.. I updated everything, don't have any LE or anything like that. I have the current versions of the XML, your mod and the doctors interactions. It only shows "Update Patient Records" on the Computer. I tried different computers, the one from the base game only and the ones from the EP's. I'm giving up
