What Do Physicians Do?

Medicine is one of the most diverse of all professions. Physicians are the principal providers of health care, either by working directly with patients or by working in clinical or research laboratories. As technologies progress, new sub-specialties are being developed, and even traditional areas of medicine require continuing medical education.
