Internal medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists. They manage and prevent common and complex diseases by providing comprehensive care and promoting overall well-being.

Intensive care medicine, also called critical care medicine, is a medical specialty that deals with critically ill patients who have, are at risk of, or are recovering from conditions that may be life-threatening. Critical care specialists, also known as intensivists, provide around-the-clock care in highly-stressful situations within intensive care units (ICUs) in hospitals or trauma centers to the most seriously injured or ill patients. They are trained to provide time-restrained emergency medical care, life support, and organ support, while also interacting with the patient’s family during emotionally challenging times.
