General Medicine

General medicine, also known as internal medicine, is a branch of medicine that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. General medicine physicians, also called internists, are trained to manage complex medical conditions and to provide comprehensive care to adult patients. Some of the common conditions treated by general medicine physicians include diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, respiratory illnesses, gastrointestinal disorders, infectious diseases, and mental health conditions. They may also provide routine care, such as preventive screenings, vaccinations, and wellness check-ups. General medicine physicians use a variety of diagnostic tests and procedures to evaluate and diagnose medical conditions, including blood tests, imaging tests, electrocardiograms (ECGs), and biopsies. Treatment options may include medications, lifestyle modifications, and referrals to specialists for more advanced care. General medicine physicians also play an important role in managing chronic medical conditions and coordinating care among multiple specialists. They may work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as nurses, physician assistants, and pharmacists, to provide comprehensive care to patients. In addition to their clinical work, general medicine physicians may also engage in research, teaching, and advocacy to improve patient care and advance the field of medicine.
