Medical
English term or phrase: special clinician
In most states, only doctors perform abortions. In a few states, special clinicians do them.
LAURA
especialista o medico/clinico especialista
Explanation:
Doctors get their first degree after 5-8 years of hard work, just to find out that they can hardly do any work unless they continue to become a specialist. This takes between 2 and 8 years (depending on the country and area of specilization). After this time, and if you still feel stron), you can become a sub-specialist (which in this case is confusing as it is above the specialist (:->) The person who does the termination of pregnancies are either docotrs or nurses/midwifes (nurses/midwifes do most medical as oposed to mechanical terminations). Doctors are often obstetricians (who are especialistas in obstetricia). If you meet "un medico especialista" you would naturally ask "and which one is your area of "especialidad"?.
You would have to decide if the person in yourtext is a medic or a nurse/midwife. Coming from the US I would choose clinico especilista

clínico(s) especial(es)


Explanation:
"En la mayoría de los estados, unicamente los doctores realizan abortos. En algunos estados los llevan a cabo clínicos especiales ."

Laura:
Aunque yo siempre había usado la palabra "clínico" solamente como adjetivo, hoy aprendí que (según mi diccionario) también puede usarse como sustantivo en español. Se oye un poco extraño, al menos para mí, pero es un término válido.

clínicos especializados


Explanation:
Generally "doctors" and "clinicians" function as synonyms, but here there is a difference.
Without the whole context, I think that it means: En la mayoría de los estados sólo los médicos cirujanos (that is, medical doctors who practice surgery) realizan abortos. En otros pocos los hacen clínicos especializados.
According to Webster's, "clinician: a physician who studies diseases at the bedside, or is skilled in clinical methods" and "physician: [2nd def.] one engaged in general medical practice, as distinguished from one specializing in surgery"
Hope it helps, best regards,

Clinico especialista en abortos.


Explanation:
There should be an accent in the last o of Clinico in the answer given. I would have to say about the question that in most Hispanic countries most titles in any worker's field could vary but overall given the text that you've given me this is the closest match in overall understanding and closest definition.
