MEF Program Summary
Internal Medicine is a core medical specialty, eminently hospital, which proposes a comprehensive approach to all health problems of the individual.
It is characterized by being an eminently clinical discipline. That is, it starts from the anamnesis and physical examination to guide the patient's diagnostic and therapeutic process.
The comprehensive approach to all health problems that characterize the care work of internists makes them especially useful to care for multi-pathological patients, patients with "transversal" processes that affect multiple organs or systems (infectious, autoimmune, or metabolic diseases) or patients with nonspecific symptoms requiring a diagnostic approach.
The Internal Medicine Service treats patients admitted to hospital, day hospital patients, outpatient clinics of different types (general, rapid diagnosis, vascular risk factors or systemic autoimmune diseases), interconsultations in surgical areas and patients cared for in home hospitalization.
Additionally, Internal Medicine residents are trained in Infectious Diseases (service with hospitalization, day hospital and specific outpatient consultations) and Geriatrics (unit with hospitalization and specific outpatient consultation).
