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. For more info visit: http://www.medicasa.in/ 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 patients medical problems to understand all the angles of their patients 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
