I would highly appreciate this too.
You can add a "battlefield" but no doctors.

There should also be a symbol for psychotherapist/psychiatrist i think. But one symbol would be fine for me too.

I think that this would be a useful option to inculde location of surgeries and clinics on the map.

I agree with this - we should have symbols for doctors of the various disciplines in OSM.
Currently I'm mapping some places for the (German) project Wheelmap.org (based on OSM), which provides a map for wheelchair drivers. They - like other handicapped people - need to know where a doctor is and especially whether it's the right doctor. Unfortunately the Wheelmap apps are not very precise to set the proper position and OSM doesn't provide an opportunity to correct the wrong values - so people can easily get misled.
Thus I propose to have doctor symbols for the most common disciplines (general practitioner, internist, urologist, dentist, gynecologist, orthopedist etc.) and therapists (physiotherapist, healer etc.)

absolutely agree.

I was just trying to add our local doctor and found no icon. It would be very helpful for everyone to see where the next doctor is located. Labelling a doctor (who has opening/closing times) as a hospital isn't an option.

As pointed out by the poster above me, having different icons for doctors would be even better.

I agree too, in case of emergency it would be very helpful.
