Internal Medicine

A Day in the Life

Internists are medical doctors who only treat adults. They practice internal medicine, which generally refers to conditions affecting the internal organs. 

Internists are the first point of treatment for most people. Internists monitor their patient’s conditions carefully and will update treatment approaches if necessary. Internists also may take part in conducting medical or academic research, such as running clinical trials or analyzing healthcare records.
