"Suitable for the Orient" is a short story by author Karen Traviss. It was published in February 2003 in Asimov's Science Fiction. The story was given an honourable mention in the book, "Year's Best Science Fiction #21".

Suitable for the Orient is a Science Fiction story in which a doctor has to come to terms with his assignment as a doctor on a human outpost, and his role as a sub-standard doctor, stationed specifically because he is in a place where he's not essential. During the story, the human colony gains some tense relations with a native sub-sentient race after a hunting expedition.
