Many early-20th-century American physicians studied medicine in Germany and brought this medical field to the United States. Thus, the name “internal medicine” was adopted in imitation of the existing German term.
Internal Medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of undifferentiated and multi-system diseases and their processes. It is derived from the German word ‘Innere Medizin’ meaning internal medicine. The doctors were known to be internal medicine doctors or internists because they focused on the “inner” diseases instead of the external manifestations of those diseases. It explores the underlying pathological causes of symptoms and syndromes with the help of laboratory and clinical assessment of bedside patients and emergency wards.
