Internal medicine physicians, also known as internists, work to prevent, diagnose and treat adult illnesses.

The Division of General Internal Medicine at Cook County Health provides general medical care to adults with complex, chronic conditions.
We work to ensure our care is tailored to the needs of our patients. We work in hospital settings and outpatient clinics across Cook County.
