What is the difference between intentional and unintentional tort in the medical field?

The classic unintentional tort, in any field, is negligence. Negligence is an unintentional tort because the tortfeasor does not intend to cause harm, but, through careless behavior, does cause harm. In the medical field, negligence is generally called "malpractice" - when a doctor or other medical professional fails to exercise the proper skill, judgment, or care expected of such a professional, and through this failure, causes injury to a patient. An intentional tort in the medical field could include any intentional tort that someone can commit outside the medical field - such as assault, battery, false imprisonment, fraud, etc. An example of battery that could conceivably be committed by a doctor would be the doctor performing an operation that the patient did not consent to.
