Internal Medicine is one of the main specialties of medicine. These main specialties
include surgery, ob-gyn and paediatrics. Many Sub-specialties derive from the General
Internal Medicine. These subspecialties can be organ oriented like cardiology or
nephrology; system oriented like immunology; age oriented like geriatric medicine or
condition oriented like medicine of pregnancy.
General Internal Medicine covers all aspects of the pathology of adolescents, adults and
the elderly (it does not treat children). It is neither surgical nor invasive. It treats all
genders without discrimination and covers every disease of every organ that is
susceptible of medical (non-surgical) treatment, especially complex diseases of multiple
organs with or without comorbidity.

The preferred level of attention of General Internal Medicine is curative or "secondary
prevention", although internists have the knowledge and training for primary attention.
Internal Medicine can treat the medical pathologies of pregnant women and the medical
complications associated with surgery and anaesthesia.
Internal Medicine has a strong foundation in epidemiology and evidence based
medicine, nevertheless its objective is not the attention of great populations but the
patient himself, using the bio-psycho-social model.
Internal Medicine stays current in the knowledge of medical technology without
abusing with this technology, because its foundation is the clinical practice. Therefore,
it employs semiology and complements it with therapeutics.
General Internal Medicine integrates and serves as connection of its subspecialties. Like
any other main specialty, it has given to its many branches room for their practice,
development and existence as the volume of knowledge and therapeutic procedures
grows. No one should ever see an Internist performing cardiac catheterism nor digestive
endoscopy; these procedures are left to their respective subspecialties.
General Internal Medicine is more important in the present model of super
specialization that has been fuelled by all the technological changes and growth of
medical knowledge, so that patients do not become "collectors of specialists". In this
model of medical super specialization, the internists reivindicate the Integra list and
generalist spirit of internism, in correspondence with the tendencies towards the
complex and complementary vision of life in all its manifestations. The goal of the
Internist is to be able to prevent and solve more than 80% of a patient's medical
problems, to understand all the angles of their patient's pathologies, and know the
interactions of treatments for their different problems, harmonizing those treatments,
taking the best thing from each one of the specialties and aiming towards the vision of
the patient, that is not a sack of unconnected organs, but a complex being with soul,
body, mind and family.
