Internal medicine specialists focus primarily on treating adults. Despite the name, they are schooled in treating the whole body, not just the internal organs, and see patients for a variety of conditions and complaints. Also known as internists, these doctors often work as general practitioners. Patients see an internist for an annual checkup and diagnosis, as well as for treatment and management of acute and chronic illnesses (including prescriptions for medications). Preventive medicine and patient education are often emphasized.
