Internal Medicine is a fundamentally hospital-based core medical specialisation that provides adult patients with integrated care for their health issues. It uses a medical approach for prevention, diagnosis, therapeutic indications and monitoring of adult patients, including rehabilitation and palliative care. Internists are the backbone of the hospital and bring their versatility to acute hospital admissions and the A&E department. They act as consultants in primary care and offer innovative alternatives for conventional admissions and within the health and social care setting.

Why specialise at Vall d’Hebron?
- Because we are a tertiary hospital with outstanding departments. The number of patients who pass through the centre offers great potential for learning and gaining experience.
- Because we cover most specialisations and you will have the opportunity to see complex conditions and to use cutting-edge diagnostic techniques and treatments.
- Because our training programme can adapt to the initiative and vocation of each resident, with more emphasis on patient-contact or research according to their needs.
Dr. Francesc Bosch, Head of the Haematology Department, talks about the complexity of the Department, which has turned Vall d’Hebron into a reference centre in haematology thanks to its commitment to transplants and the use of new treatments. The Clinical Trials Unit helps a lot, giving access to treatments for complex patients.
