Here is the last part of the Medical Field Sleuths theme. This list is comprised of authors who are on the Cozy Mystery site who write mysteries that feature sleuths who are in the medical field, but aren’t your traditional “doctor, nurse, or midwife”. As you can see, these amateur sleuths’ professions are pretty varied.

If I have missed any other Cozy Mystery site authors who have a sleuth who works in the medical field (not as a traditional doctor, nurse, or midwife), please post a comment so that I can add the omission.
