What is Internal Medicine?
Internal medicine is the medical specialty that primarily focuses on adult patients. Internal medicine physicians, also known as internists, are primary care physicians who handle the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases.
Internists are trained to care for patients who have complex disease processes that may involve multiple organ systems. Internists treat patients in the clinic and hospital setting. Many internists are involved in teaching and research.
