Division of Internal Medicine
Cardiovascular Prevention Centre - Jewish General Hospital


Specialists in Internal Medicine focus on multi-organ diseases and complex acute illnesses. At times, requested consultations in an out-patient setting do not meet the scope of their practice or deal with chronic conditions with non-organic causes. This lecture will look into a better triage process namely through differential diagnosis, adequate work-up, red flags and appropriate pathways for better care.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the role of a specialist in Internal Medicine
  • Review possible investigations in a Primary Care setting
  • Guide patients to the most appropriate consultant.
