What does a Clinician do?

Clinicians are healthcare providers who deal directly with patients and whose responsibilities vary depending upon their job title. They can be medical assistants, doctors, counselors, or psychiatrists. They provide health care and treatment to patients with varying ailments or conditions and provide support to prevent disease. They are medical professionals in various settings, including registered nurses and mental health clinicians.

Clinicians document the patient's medical history and use and maintain medical equipment. They give diagnostic tests, observe vitals, and provide a prognosis from treatment progress. Their general responsibilities pertain to diagnosing illness and administering treatment to patients. If diagnosing a mental illness, clinicians work with the patient to create customized treatment plans based upon their needs. Clinicians need a minimum bachelor's degree in a pre-medical subject, and some have completed Registered Nurse certification. Other positions require an M.D. degree.
