  • Ordering, performing and interpreting diagnostic tests such as lab work and x-rays.

  • Diagnosing and treating acute and chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, infections, and injuries.

  • Prescribing medications and other treatments.

  • Managing patients' overall care.
