Obviously there is more than one way to build a healer. But think the reason that one uses an engineer as main healer and not a sci or tac is because of the superior self-defense of the engineer. And armor consoles increase the defensive strength of the ship.

A little bit more healing here and there can help occasionally, but a dead main healer will certainly get the team in trouble, so it is paramount that he stays alive.
