What I really need are medical texts - books on psychology or pediatrics, specifically.

Lieutenant Markland is an NCR army doctor stationed at Bitter Springs in 2281.


Markland is the medical officer and field medic at Bitter Springs. While he has extensive medical knowledge and field first aid (treating trench foot, making a tourniquet, etc.), he was not trained to treat the psychological trauma from which many of the refugees suffer.

Notable quotesEdit

  • "I'm an army field medic. I can treat bullet wounds, shrapnel, trench foot no problem. But this, the kids and the psychological trauma and all the rest is out of my league."
  • "What I really need are medical texts - books on psychology or pediatrics, specifically."
  • "I think that should just about cover us. I really don't know how to thank you, bringing me these supplies saved a lot of people."


Lieutenant Markland appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
