What is Internal Medicine?
Internal Medicine is a branch of medicine specializing in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of adult diseases. Doctors of internal medicine, or “internists,” have devoted a minimum of three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training to study how to diagnose, prevent and treat all types of diseases that involve adults.
Moreover, Doctors of Internal Medicine are often called the “doctor’s doctor,” due to the fact that they frequently act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems. Keep in mind, doctors of internal medicine treat the whole person and not just the internal organs. Therefore internists act as specialists as well as Family Practice and Primary Care physicians.
