The XO can also help with new crew members, website work, etc.

Doctor: Doctor's primary concern is with the physical health and well-being of the crew, and as a secondary role, the health and well-being of any Federation citizen in need of medical attention. In addition to performing routine examinations and check ups, the Doctors on a starship perform emergency medical procedures, conduct surgery, and assist with injuries and illnesses of all types. When not actively busy with patients, many Doctors occupy their time with conducting medical research for cures or to understand new illnesses/lifeforms.
