About Internal Medicine

Internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness.

An Internist specializes in internal medicine, a discipline focused on the care of adults emphasizing use of the best medical science available in caring for their patients through thoughtful, meaningful doctor-patient relationships. A minimum of three to seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adult patients.

Internal Medicine Subspecialists

Some internists subspecialize in a more focused area of internal medicine. Subspecialists undergo training (called “Fellowship”) that require and additional one to three years or more beyond the three-year internal medicine residency. These physicians often are referred to by their area of specialty. The training an internist receives to subspecialize in a specialty qualifies them to manage very complex issues and often perform advanced clinical procedures.
