Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Physicians

Physicians, also known as doctors, are healthcare professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries. They play a central role in the healthcare system by providing direct patient care and leading the healthcare team.

There are different types of physicians that specialize in different areas of medicine, such as:

Family medicine physicians: They provide primary care services to patients of all ages, and often serve as the first point of contact for patients seeking medical attention.

Pediatricians: They specialize in the care of infants, children, and adolescents.

Obstetricians/gynecologists: They specialize in women’s health, including pregnancy and childbirth.

Surgeons: They perform surgical procedures to treat injuries, illnesses, and deformities.

Cardiologists: They specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of heart and blood vessel conditions.

Oncologists: They specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

Neurologists: They specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the brain and nervous system.

Psychiatrists: They specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of mental health conditions.

Physicians typically complete a four-year undergraduate degree, followed by four years of medical school, and several years of supervised training in a medical residency program. They must also pass a licensing exam to practice in the United States. Physicians are responsible for making diagnoses, developing treatment plans, prescribing medications, and providing patient education and follow-up care. They also play an important role in the community, often serving as advocates for public health and providing community education about health issues.
