Carl's Sims 3 Guide - Skills, Traits, Careers, Rewards, and Lifetime Wishes for Ambitions and World Adventures

The Sims 3 Medical Career Track

This Sims 3 Guide was originally written for the PC and Mac versions of the game, but also will help owners of the console versions - PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Please remember some info or numbers may have changed.

Medical Career Track in the Sims 3To get your Sim a job in the medical career track, have them apply at the hospital. This career track is very logic-intensive and will require your Sim to read medical journals most every day to maintain a high level of job performance. Doctors make a lot of money, but high level ones will be on call and may have their day interrupted by an emergency at the hospital.

Sims that reach the World Renowned Surgeon job will find they are able to determine the gender of a baby, and see if it's a boy or girl. It's not that useful however, because once Mom is pregnant the baby's gender is locked and you can't use fruit to change it. Note that they can only use the determine gender action when the Sim is visibly pregnant. Follow that link to learn about how to select your baby's gender.

Some believe that Logic grants this ability, but it is not so. The role of logic in determining a baby's gender is its contribution to the doctor's rise to world renowned surgeon.

Medical Career Track Events

There are a number of different events that can pop up while your Sim is climbing the medicine career ladder. Early on, bad things like getting pushed into a laundry cart and having hygiene plummet can occur. Later, only positive events happen. When the stranger comes in, it doesn't seem to matter if you Accept or Decline. Also, it's always Bloatyheaditis. World Renowned Surgeons may occasionally sink a record breaking putt and earn a quick $1,000 bonus. All other events will raise job performance or relations with co-workers. Some also give an instant raise, such as in the case of Bloatyheaditis.

Medical Career Opportunities

To the Rescue
A high level doctor Sim may be asked to rush to city hall to save a politician's life. It will be due by the next work shift. Do this to receive a $2,000 cash bonus.

Donate Your Sim's Heart
Another opportunity for high level doctors, this will likely present itself at World Renowned Surgeon. Your Sim will be asked to donate their heart and receive an artificial one in exchange. This will give them not only a $4,000 bonus but a raise of around $67.

Good Traits for The Sims 3's Medical Career Track

The Genius trait will help with the logic skill, which the medical track requires heavily. Your Sim will also be better at chess, giving them another outlet for their brilliance.

Later in the career track, your Sim will need to begin reading medical research journals. Bookworm can help them to breeze through them quickly. It will also help them to enjoy reading, and they'll have a good way to gain lifetime happiness by reading books. Of course this can also help raise the logic skill, especially if your Sim reads the skill books in the library.
