The "medical virtualist"--a new specialty?
« on: November 27, 2017, 04:12:36 pm »
A "Viewpoint" article in JAMA (November 27) proposes a new specialty, the "medical virtualist," which might more easily be called a "virtual doctor," I think, but that's just my opinion.

Quote
This term could be used to describe physicians who will spend the majority or all of their time caring for patients using a virtual medium.
