What Is General Internal Medicine?

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

the patient, that is not a sack of unconnected organs, but a complex being with soul,

body, mind and family.
