Internal Medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and nonsurgical treatment of diseases affecting the internal organs of the body in adults.
Specialists in this field are called specialist general physicians. They are doctors who have trained in various specialties such as diseases of the heart, lungs, brain and other organs. Often people have more than one part of the body involved in an illness or the exact cause of symptoms is not clear. The General Physician is an expert in diagnosing what is wrong and managing illnesses that are complex.
The Medical team is made up of Specialists in Medicine, Hospital Medical Officers (senior doctors who work across all teams especially when working in the Emergency Care Department), Registrars, who are fully qualified doctors undertaking further training in medicine and House Officers who are recently qualified doctors working in the team under supervision of the senior members.
