FAQs on Internal Medicine:
How Is Internal Medicine Different From Family Practice?
The differences between these two branches of medicine may seem minimal, since the majority of patients both for internists and family practitioners are adults. However, these two types of doctors go through different types of training (and family member doctors often see patients of all ages).
Through their training, an internist has chosen to focus specifically on a range of sciences that allows them to care for adult patients, including ophthalmology, psychiatry, rheumatology, and endocrinology. So if you are an adult who wants comprehensive care from one doctor, internal medicine may be the right choice for you.
