Whats the difference between a family doctor and internal medicine doctor?

Internal Medicine doctors (also called "internists") spend 3 or more years of intensive training learning how to diagnose and treat non-surgical medical problems in teens and adults through old age. They can treat any problems, simple or complex, in fact, other doctors often refer their patients to internists to solve puzzling medical problems. Internists are also very good at treating multiple medical problems that may come up at the same time and are often tied together.

Family doctors spend their 3 years of training learning about medical problems of children, adults, OB/Gyn, surgery and other specialties. They can treat families from babies to adults, but their training is not as intensive in one area as an Internal Medicine doctor.

How do you find gay-friendly doctors?

A doctor has an oath they should stand behind so it shouldn't matter if the doctor is straight or gay. My girlfriend lives in L.A., is gay and has a straight doctor and has no problem.

AnswerThat previous answer is a bit short-sighted. Doctors are subject to the same prejudices as ordinary mortals. I went to my doctor for a cholesterol test. When I told my doctor I was gay, she wanted me to get vaccinated for Hepatitus C. She also wanted me to get an HIV test. I explained that I am completely monogamous with my partner of 12 years, but she continued to insist. There is nothing scientific with what she said. A gay person isn't magically more likely to contract these diseases solely on the basis of sexual orientation. the doctor needs to find out about the patient's behavior. So, if you want to find a GLBT friendly doctor, try http://www.glma.org/

Both of the previous statements are true...however, even if doctors have the duty to care for their patient's without prejudice, they ARE humans and they have opinions that skew their point of view. The same way you look for doctors that embrace alternative medicine, or are "pro-life", or are specialized in whatever, you also should shop around for a doctor that is knowledgeable about LGBT issues and is supportive. Caring for patients must take in consideration all aspects of their life. Fortunately this is the direction medicine is taking now, albeit slowly.

As to the experience of the writer above, I have to agree with that doctor's approach. Statistically speaking, gay men are more exposed to STD, like hep.C and HIV. Nothing magical about it, just human nature. Truthfully, no-one knows 100% that their partner is faithful. We are all human, again, and we make mistakes. We have to be practical, get tested and vaccinated, and be mindful of our choices. I have cared for too many people, men and women, who had been monogamous with their partners and believed they were too, and ended in the hospital with STD's. I don't put faith on a promise, but on the knowledge that we make mistakes, and we can be too embarrassed to admit it. I urge everyone to be tested, regularly; to protect themselves, every time; and to protect others and those we love.

How do you earn doctoral degree in internal medicine?

You do not earn a doctoral degree in a medical specialty. You earn your doctorate in medicine, then you receive additional training in your speciatly. For instance, if you wanted to specialized in Internal medicine, you would obtain your undergraduate degree, apply for medical school and graduate. At this point, you have your doctorate in medicine (or osteopathic medicine, depending on the medical school of your choosing). However, as a doctor, you cannot legally obtain a license to practice without additional training after you complete your doctorate. So you must apply for residency (in this case, in Internal medicine) and complete that training, which lasts 3 years. So, all told, after high school, you receive this much additional training: College - at least 4 years

Medical school - 4 years

Residency (Internal medicine) - 3 years

---------------------------------------------------

Add them up - 11 years Other residencies are longer - for instance, surgical residencies are at least 5 years after medical school, so you base of 11 years after high school only goes up, depending on the training you choose.

What is the difference between internal medicine and family practices?

To overgeneralize the answer.

Family practice focuses on birth to death health care. (Broad scope of knowledge)

Internal Medicine focuses on the health care of adults. (Relatively specific knowledge)

In terms of practice as a primary care physician there is very little difference in general treatment practice.

Multiple choice question and answer in endocrinology?

Managing diversity is of strategic significance to competitive advantages of an organization. With internationalization of business, advanced telecommunication technology and rapid pace of work and life, diverse workforce has become a commonality (Mavin and Girling, 2000). The scope of diversity varies from gender, age, religion, ethnicity to values, characters and beliefs with gender as the most common and oldest topic of discussion in HRM studies (Shen et al, 2009). In the case of DuPont Beijing, gender inequality could be indicated by the gender spillover effects and the number of female in positions of head of department. According to Greer et al (2001), gender spillover effects refer to the fact that allocation of task is determined by gender expectations and stereotypes rather than actual capabilities (Greer et al, 2001). For instance, the departments of corporate communication and human resources in DuPont Beijing are dominated by female employees while the department of IT and R&D are dominated by male employees. As to this case, HR in the organization tends to recruit and evaluate candidates based on gender stereotypes and discrimination. Indeed, there is no doubt in some positions, female displays more advantages while in other positions, male are more suitable. However, gender inequality not only occurs in position preferences but also in evaluation and appraisal. According to the research done by Shen et al (2009), female employees are paid less than their male counterparts. Consequently, it undermines employee morale and affects corporate reputation.

What is the difference between internal medicine dr's osteopathic dr's and MD's?

osteopathic doctors (DO) and alopathic doctors (MD) are both well trained. MDs tend to specialize in one area of medicine. DOs are trained to work with the whole body.

DOs are qualified to take BOTH the DO and MD medical tests to get their liscense for medical practice.

MDs are qualified to take ONLY the MD medical test

Osteopathic Doctors must take more extensive medical school courses.

Personally, I am more comfortable having a DO as my doctor.

---------

For all practical purposes, there is absolutely no difference between the two degrees and the people who hold them. The best thing you can do is find a doctor whose personality you find agreeable. This may be an MD or a DO.

What happens to human hair in a sauna?

Well... Hot and sweaty hair does grow faster, because it opens your pores in your scalp and helps blood flow to your hair follicles so I'm guessing in a sauna it would help all that for better growth?
