If I was a rogue that wanted to be prepared, and just know a few healing spells, could I?

Would I be able to be taught by a cleric buddy? Could I take just one lesson at a magic school?

Is it possible to just learn that single healing spell and not have to acquire a magic item or multiclass? I just want to be able to heal troublesome cuts and such.

    \$\begingroup\$ Hi, welcome to the site. Unfortunately, without a system tag on your question, we have no idea what game you’re playing, so we don't know what rules you’re using, so we can’t answer the question. We answer questions about thousands of different games here. So please add a system tag, e.g. dnd-5e for the latest edition of Dungeons & Dragons, to your question so we can help. \$\endgroup\$ – KRyan Dec 19 '18 at 6:14

    \$\begingroup\$ There's plenty of games where this is easily doable, and plenty others where it is not, so there's no general answer. There's even lots of games where there's no such thing as "magic", or no such thing as "rogues". In general, there are no general answers to RPG questions without knowing the rules system being used. Either way; welcome to the site. This question will probably be closed as being un-answerable, but that's just procedure. Enjoy your first game! \$\endgroup\$ – Erik Dec 19 '18 at 6:21

    \$\begingroup\$ Consider that asking this without specifying a game is a bit like going into a board game parlor and asking “can I move my piece two spaces?”; you're going to get people asking what you're playing: Monopoly, Risk, Chess, Checkers, Go, etc just for starters—and there's a hundred more games on the shelf. There's thousands of RPGs and all of them are very different from one another. There's no generic answer. It sounds like you're playing Dungeons & Dragons, but we also need to know which edition because the rules for building characters and what features they have available varies each edition. \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener Dec 19 '18 at 11:42

    \$\begingroup\$ You can ask your friend what game they’re running, then add that to the question. It will be waiting here for you if you want to do that, and can be unheld then. \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie Dec 19 '18 at 16:06
