Internists are physicians who diagnose and provide non-surgical treatment of disease and injuries of internal organ systems. They provide care mainly for adults who have a wide range of problems associated with the internal organs.
Like all physicians, internists have completed a four-year bachelor’s degree, plus four years of medical school to obtain a medical degree. In addition to extensive undergraduate and graduate education, internists must complete several years of graduate medical education. Most internists are required to be board certified in internal medicine.
