English term or phrase: black bag
Everyone remembers who gave them the black bag and the stethoscope when they first qualified because these things matters; they are what made us doctors. They made our lives better.

黒カバン、往診用カバン
Explanation:
In (old) TV dramas, doctors carry a big black bag when they make a home visit. I have a vague memory that our own doctor had one when he came around to see my grandmother at home a very long time ago. That looked special, not like briefcases or any other normal bag. I wonder if this refers to that.
Out of curiosity I searched for 往診用カバン using Google and found the following website. The photo is not very clear, but it might help you....
