About our student programs
Doctors of internal medicine are adult medicine specialists. The different specialties in internal medicine include cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, general internal medicine, hematology, hospital medicine, human genetics, infectious diseases, nephrology, oncology, palliative care, pulmonary and critical care medicine and rheumatology.
Internists are equipped to deal with whatever problem a patient brings – no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex. They are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic diseases and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. They also bring to patients an understanding of wellness, disease prevention and promotion of health.
In today's complex medical environment, internists take pride in caring for their patients for life – in the office or clinic, during hospitalization and intensive care and in nursing homes. Taken from http://www.acponline.org.
