We aim at the diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases, studying the interactions between the various organs and systems and integrating the knowledge dispersed by the other specialties and subspecialties, allowing to approach the patient as a whole.

The responsible physician proceeds with a comprehensive approach to the case (requesting, when appropriate, a multidisciplinary line of action with the support of other specialties) and guides the clinical history, evolution, examination and treatments carried out, coordinating the situations in which the other medical specialties are involved in a treatment regime. Their generalist training and extensive experience in the hospital ward, emergency department, intensive and intermediate care units (including stroke units), allows the professional to take a holistic approach to the patient’s problems, drawing up a comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic plan. It is also up to the internist to deal with situations of difficult diagnosis, and patients with multiple pathologies and / or with eminently systemic diseases (involving more than one organ or system of organs).
