Clinical medicine is built on a foundation of basic medical sciences.
Internal Medicine is a broad field of medicine where students will be exposed to preventing, diagnosing, and treating a wide array of diseases in adult patients. Diseases treated by internists commonly involve multiple organ systems, which is why students are exposed to initiating hypothesis-driven patient histories, physical exams and laboratory testing. Students will learn how to interpret these results to use as an diagnostic tool for providing a complete assessment. Students will be trained on using evidence-based medicine, clinical reasoning and the quality of the patient-physician relationship.
