"I will follow that method of treatment which, according to my ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous." HIPPOCRATES
By tradition, the internist has concerned himself with the problems of diagnosis and medical treatment, and has sought the help of surgical colleagues when indicated. He has further devoted himself to the study of disease itself, and to the evaluation of treatment programs, whether they be medical or surgical. The functions of the internist relative to open heart surgery are exactly the same as for other areas of medicine.
