A distinction is made between general practitioner (GP) and hospital-based specialties such as surgery, internal medicine as well as pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology. Most highly-paid professionals in the world are physicians. Nurses are also among the top-paid professional. Nurses offer care for patients which includes diagnosis, treatment and prevention. They also collaborate with other healthcare providers including doctors pharmacies, therapists, and pharmacists.
Another career path within the medical field is a pharmacist. Pharmacists dispense medications and advise patients on the appropriate use of drugs. They analyze prescriptions and determine conditions. Although some pharmacists work in the retail pharmacy and are employed in compounding, they cover an array of specialties. Next, physical therapists treat patients with injuries related to movement or diseases. They evaluate and manage muscular and skeletal injuries and conditions.
