WHAT IS AN INTERNIST?
He is a specialist in clinical complexity with extensive hospital training. Is a highly trained doctor in the clinical pluripathology, associated comorbidities, border pathology (convergence of pathologies typical of different specialties) and it can naturally build bridges with other specialties and stand at the epistemic crossroads of specialties.
The internist must coordinate the task of the medical team, seeing the patient as a whole.
For the International College of Internal Medicine (ICIM), Internal Medicine is in permanent dialogue with other medical specialties and knowledge, even with disciplines not strictly medical.
