A Health Tip from Alberto Sobrado, MD
Community Medical Professionals of North Andover, MA

Doctors of internal medicine concentrate on adult medicine and have had focused study and training on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. Generally, at least three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training have been dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults.


What’s the Difference Between an Internist and an Intern?

People sometimes confuse the terms internist and intern but they are not the same thing. Interns are doctors in their first year of residency, while internists are Medical Doctors specializing in Internal Medicine.

The Doctor’s Doctor

Internists are sometimes referred to as the "doctor's doctor," because they are often asked to act as consultants to other family physicians, general practitioners, and even pediatric physicians to help solve diagnostic problems.

Doctors of internal medicine may be called "internists," "general internists" and "doctors of internal medicine." Many internists act as primary care physicians because they are well equipped to deal with whatever problem a patient may have -- no matter how rare or complex. They are specially trained to solve the most puzzling diagnostic problems and severe chronic illnesses or situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. They may also counsel patients on wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women's health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs.
