What is General Medicine?

General medicine, also known as internal medicine, is a medical speciality that is concerned with preventing, diagnosing and treating adult diseases relating to internal organs. General physicians are trained to treat multi-system diseases that single-organ-disease specialists might not be trained to assess. They are trained to provide patients with comprehensive care when they are dealing with numerous simultaneous problems.

Common conditions requiring treatment from general physicians are arthritis, diabetes, hypertension, chronic bronchitis, influenza, sinus infection, acute respiratory infections, bowel disturbance, asthma and menopause.
