Overview

Internal medicine is a medical specialty focused on identifying and treating diseases and other issues inside the body that typically affect multiple internal organs. Internal medicine is often confused with family practice medicine. Although both disciplines are focused on the treatment and prevention of a variety of diseases in patients, they are distinct. The biggest difference is that internal medicine doctors will only treat adults, while family practice doctors may treat patients of any age.
