A clinician is a professional dealing with a patient's medical condition, eg a doctor, nurse, physiotherapist.

 

Non-specific

The term is a non-specific one, not implying any particular qualification or branch of medicine, but tends to encompass the whole sphere of medical practice, rather than just medically-qualified doctors.
