Internal Medicine & Patient Care
Internal medicine is the medicinal characteristic dealing with the prevention, detections, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists, or in Commonwealth nations. Internists are experienced in the management of patients who have multi-system disease processes. Internal medicine patients are often seriously diseased or require complex examination; internists do much of their work in hospitals. Internists often have subspecialty interests in a disorder affecting particular organs or organ systems. Patient care is defined as the management of hospital facilities, assistance, and staff as per the therapeutic and nursing needs of the patient. Internists care for confined and ambulatory patients and may play an extensive aspect in teaching and research.
