Informal Description of the Clinical Discipline
Internal Medicine is a broad-based primary care specialty focused on disease prevention and treatment in young and older adults.  The educational focus of the internal medicine training program is designed to allow optimum exposure to the many facets of internal medicine in order to prepare the individual for a position of leadership as a practitioner, consultant, subspecialist or academician.  Educational programs emphasize pathophysiologic principles.  The training program for a general internist is three years with graded responsibility for patient care.  During this period the physician is exposed to primary care and subspecialty disciplines and participates in the clinical activities of cardiologists, gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, etc., as part of the training program.  An internist is expected to become a well-read and well-rounded consultant, participating actively in the care of adults with a variety of medical problems.  The internist may serve as a primary care physician in some situations and as a consultant in others.  Approximately half of the internists finishing the three-year training program become primary care health providers.  Others enter a subspecialty fellowship training program or become hospitalists.
