English term or phrase:clinician
I would like you to help me out with the translation of this term. The context is a psicolinguistic text, in which they are are refered to as reserchers.
Thanks for help
Al ver la palabra "clinician". uno piensa inmediatamente en médico. Pero también existen clínicos en la psicología. SOn los psicólogos clínicos, que, al contrario de los investigadores, practican la clínica, cuidando de pacientes. Los investigadores hacen sólo investigación teórica.
Sería bueno que nos dieras toda la frase del contexto.
... la lectura de una perspectiva psicolinguística", Coordinación de la especialidad en ... la especializacion en psicología clínica infantil. Escuela de Psicología ...
Explanation: I would suggest to use only clinico because:
No all clinical work is done by medics (e.g. clinical psychology),
Medico interno is the equivalent of a physician (specialist in adult medice) and other specialties also do clinical work.
Medicos clinicos implies that the work is done by medics and in your context is probably a psychologist (who would get upset!).
I trained in 'clinical' paediatrics
