Is Internal Medicine a good Career option?

Is Internal Medicine a good Career option?



I find a Career in Internal Medicine very interesting. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to find information about What Internal Medicine actually is. Most pages on the internet just talk about How to get into Internal Medicine. In my quest to learn more about a Career in Internal Medicine, I found this amazing page: https://www.lifepage.in/career/20190125-0001/Science/Medicine - Specialist/Career-in-Internal-Medicine/hindi 


Prem Narayan's take!

Prem Narayan invested 10 years & 3 months in Internal Medicine. Prem Narayan has worked in Internal Medicine as Consultant in VelMed Hospital. In Prem Narayan's own words, this is how Prem Narayan got into Internal Medicine: "I did my MBBS & MD from KGMC Lucknow after which I started practicing Internal Medicine. In 2018, I joined Velmed Hospital, Dehradun as an Internal Medicine Consultant." I searched Prem Narayan on Google and found this profile: https://www.lifepage.in/page/premnarayan 


Career Video on Internal Medicine

In a video, Prem Narayan has talked about various aspects of a Career in Internal Medicine. Prem Narayan started by explaining Internal Medicine as: "Internal Medicine encompasses the care of all adults, healthy and sick. Internists can be generalists or subspecialists, like cardiologists or rheumatologists. Patients with multiple problems and medications would typically be seen by an internist." It was a very interesting video and I enjoyed watching it.



  • It was a welcome change to see the video touch upon Education as theoretical knowledge needed to excel at Internal Medicine, and not merely as Qualifications needed to enter Internal Medicine. Prem Narayan touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:Radiology
  • Pathology
  • Pharmacology
  • Biochemistry
  • Physiology
  • Anatomy

Sills and success goes hand in hand. One needs to get a hold of essential skills.

  • Prem Narayan then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Internal Medicine:Clinical Skills
  • Patience
  • Communication Skills
  • Behavioural Skills
  • Selfless Service

This Career has an interesting list of Positives.

  • Prem Narayan believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Internal Medicine:Monetary Benefits
  • Respect & Recognition
  • Self Satisfaction

Challenges are the other side of Positives and this Career is no exception.

  • And, Prem Narayan believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Internal Medicine:Lack of Support
  • 24*7 Job
  • Lack of Awareness
  • Handling Patients Family


In the final section of the video Prem Narayan talks about How a day goes in a Career in Internal Medicine. This video is by far the best video on a Career in Internal Medicine, that I have ever come across.
