So hey are called 'Enumeration members' a.k.a. members/instances/values of
an Enumeration list - clear.

Next question: How are they supposed to be used? (maybe I didn't search
good enough but I couldn't find any examples)

I guess something like schema.org/PlasticSurgery could be used like this:

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/MedicalSpecialty">
    <link itemprop="relevantSpecialty" href="

But where would something like schema.org/Patient or schema.org/Clinician
fit in?
To me it seems they'd be great to have as subClasses of schema.org/Person
(including properties), but I seem to fail to figure out what their worth
is as Enumeration members. Any thoughts?
