Introduction to General Medicine:

General medicine is a medical specialty that is a fundamental branch of primary healthcare, focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of a wide range of diseases and conditions affecting adults. It encompasses various medical specialties, including Internal Medicine and Family Medicine, but it differs in scope and approach.

General Medicine: General medicine specialists, often referred to as MD doctors, have comprehensive training in diagnosing and managing common as well as complex medical conditions in adults. They provide primary care services, coordinate patient care, and often serve as the first point of contact for individuals seeking medical assistance.

Internal Medicine: Internal medicine primarily deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in adults, emphasizing the management of complex medical conditions. Internal medicine specialists, or internists, often work in hospital settings and may focus on specific subspecialties such as cardiology, gastroenterology, or infectious diseases.

Family Medicine Specialists: Family medicine specialists are trained to provide comprehensive healthcare for individuals of all ages, from infants to seniors. They emphasize preventive care, manage chronic diseases, and address acute medical issues within the context of family dynamics. Family medicine practitioners often serve as primary care physicians for entire families.
