Summary
  • "Ambulance Ship" -- Senior Physician Conway is assigned medical command of the light cruiser Rhabwar, in charge of treating emergencies too urgent to wait for transport to Sector General. In four stories, he and his crew encounter such medical oddities as diseases that seem to jump species, a huge space-going bird and an extremely violent species that is only intelligent for part of its life
  • "Sector General" -- Four more trips on Rhabwar, featuring such interesting patients as miles-long worms cut into spaceship-sized segments, giant snails, and comatose cones
  • "Star Healer" -- Conway is promoted off the ambulance ship to be a Diagnostician. While preparing for his new position, he becomes involved with a newly-contacted alien race - one whose members cannot touch each other without triggering a violent mob-reaction
