    What the heck is a diagnostic medical physician? Don't all physicians diagnose within their own speciality? Isn't that term coined in that show House? Excuse me if I'm wrong, but I've never heard of such specialty for doctors.

    All MD's are diagnostic. That is not a specialty.

    Do you mean like a radiologist?

    RNs can work in radiology, particularly if it's interventional.

    I'd say a specialty which requires HEAVY assessment with very close monitoring of the patient and close collaboration with the MDs, NPs. ICU for example.
