There are various Home City shipment cards to bring in two or four surgeons at once (all civilizations have at least one of these except the Spanish, Aztecs, Iroquois and Asian civilizations), which are the main way to obtain surgeons. They can also be rescued on some maps from Treasure Guardians. The surgeon can only be trained on the map through use of the Home City Card Master Surgeons (all European civilizations except the British and Spanish), allowing them to be built at a church and increasing their healing rate to 15 rather than 10.
Surgeons are the best unit at healing wounded soldiers with the above mentioned card shipment, otherwise their healing rates are identical to other healers.
- In skirmishes, surgeons usually remain silent. This is likely because they have no specific nationality.
- British Manors can be upgraded with the Florence Nightingale shipment card to provide healing to nearby units, instead of possessing Master Surgeons.
