Profession's Trademark

Allied healthcare professionals work together to provide the optimal care necessary for the patient. Everyone provides a significant role in patient management and no single profession is above another. Despite having equal significance, our profession has something distinct to offer for the patient. This is our profession's trademark or signature service. I am curious to know the trademark for each profession in the MIMS community. The trademark for my chosen profession of physical medicine and rehabilitation is functionality. In this field, we are very concerned with the patient's capability to perform activities of daily living despite having a disability such as neurologic deficit from stroke. This separates us from other fields of medicine. I hope everyone chimes in this discussion.
