Abstract

The emergence of internal medicine as an approach to medical practice in western medicine and the role of Internal Medicine as a global medical specialty are introduced. The term ‘internal medicine’ was introduced to Sri Lanka only recently, but it has enjoyed wide recognition here in this brief period. Some local contextual features that formed the foundation for this introduction and recognition are considered. Specialists in Internal Medicine in Sri Lanka should take into account these features and other important issues, as they plan to navigate the future.
