- General internal medicine physicians are specialist physicians trained to manage particularly complex or multisystem diseases that single organ disease specialists may not be trained to do. They are often asked to diagnose and manage conditions such as breathlessness, fatigue, weight loss, chest pain or confusion that cannot be easily fitted in the expertise of a single organ speciality. They also manage multiple acute and chronic diseases that a patient may have. Most of their training is in a hospital environment, where the sicker patients will be, but they also work in outpatient clinics and may provide ambulatory care of acute conditions that would otherwise be admitted to hospital. They may also have a special interest in a particular condition.
