Internal Medicine Doctors are doctors for adults. An internist’s training is usually 3-4 years after medical school, and it encompasses the breadth of problems affecting adult patients. It also encompasses preventative medicine including cancer screens, assessment of cardiac risk factors, and immunizations. Specialists such as cardiologists, nephrologists, pulmonary specialists, etc are all internal medicine doctors who have taken additional training and have more expertise in dealing with a single area of practice. For example, you would expect a cardiologist to have greater expertise in heart rhythm disturbances than that of your internist.
Board Certification is awarded by the American Board of Internal Medicine if an individual is able to pass a rigorous examination after training has been completed.
