A portrait of a group of Healers.

Harry: "Are they doctors?"
Ron: "Doctors? Those Muggle nutters that cut people up? Nah, they're Healers."
Harry and Ron.[src]

A Healer is the wizarding world equivalent of a Muggle doctor. They tend to the sick and injured at St. Mungo's Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries.


Healers specialise in different problems, from animal bites to cauldron explosions. A Healer's uniform is a lime green robe with a sign of a bone and a wand crossed on it.

There are also Healers at Quidditch games, and one at Hogwarts. Healers use a variety of spells, potions, herbs, etc.


To become a Healer, you have to have excellent academic credentials, at least five N.E.W.T.s, with a high mark of either 'Outstanding' or 'Exceeds Expectations' at Potions, Transfiguration, Herbology, Charms, and Defence Against the Dark Arts.
