Yes! Absolutely, Yes!

A single structural engineering mistake can kill or maim hundreds, if not 
thousands of people, while a single mistake by a surgeon would kill or injure 
only the person that the surgeon is working on.  Even a hundred mistakes by a 
surgeon would not affect the same number of people that a single structural 
engineering mistake could.
