Internal Medicine

Internal Medicine is a medical speciality dealing with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult (18 years and over) diseases. Those trained in Internal Medicine are also called general internists and are equipped to handle the broad spectrum of illnesses that affect adults. Internists are recognized as experts in diagnosis, in treatment of chronic illness, and in health promotion and disease prevention—they are not limited to one type of medical problem or organ system. General internists are equipped to deal with whatever problem concerns a patient—no matter how common or rare, simple or complex. Their training uniquely qualifies them to practice primary care and follow patients over the duration of their adult lives, enabling them to establish long and rewarding personal relationships with their patients. Although internists may act as primary care physicians, they are not “family physicians,” “family practitioners,” or “general practitioners,” whose training is not solely concentrated on adults and may include surgery, obstetrics and pediatrics.
