The largest primary care specialty in the Unites States, Internal Medicine is an ever-changing and rapidly advancing specialty. It deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all illnesses in adults and adolescents, short of surgery. It demands keeping current with and integrating knowledge in many areas, including allergy, arthritis, blood diseases, cancer, diabetes, digestive diseases, illness in the elderly, diseases of the heart and blood vessels, hormonal disorders, infections, intensive care, kidney diseases, and respiratory disorders. Specialists in Internal Medicine are often referred to as "medical detectives" for their unique ability to diagnose difficult cases. They serve as medical consultants to physicians in other specialties.
The practice of Internal Medicine also incorporates an understanding of wellness, disease prevention, substance abuse, mental health, and medical ethics as well as the effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system, and reproductive organs.
