Job Description for Internist

An internist is a physician who focuses on the prevention and treatment of disease. The internist will work with other physicians, in order to provide them with advice. Often, the symptoms present in a patient will be puzzling, and the internist will have to use problem-solving skills to discover what disease is ailing the patient and what sort of medication or treatment should be administered. Figuring out solutions may involve research, looking at the patient’s medical history, and figuring out what environments and substances the patient has been exposed to.
