    Excerpt from Annals of Medicine, 1920, Vol. 1: With Abstract of the World's Literature

    The organization of the American Congress on Internal Medicine does not signify the differentiation of a new specialty, but the delimitation of the oldest branch of the healing art, for it is probable that disease received earlier attention than injury. Whatever may be the fact, it is, however, true that medicine and surgery were yet undifferentiated in practice throughout the era of the prehistoric man, and even for many centuries thereafter. As war became more and more an organized operation and campaigns were planned, the care of the wounded devolved upon the practitioner of the healing art, and surgery became differentiated in name as well as practice, and the chief surgeon of the army was often the physician of the ruling prince or king. Nor, indeed, did his professional title always change, for even so late as the War of the Revolution in this country the title of the medical officer was physician and not surgeon. Yet today in the army the title of surgeon prevails, while the more important work of the military practitioner, whether considered from the combatant or the altruistic standpoint, is medical rather than surgical.

    What then is the domain of internal medicine? Shall we define it as what remains after surgery and the narrower specialties, as ophthalmology, otology, laryngology, gynecology, andrology and urology, or whatever of it belongs to the preceding two categories, are subtracted? Or shall we still further diminish its field by eliminating neurology, psychiatry, pediatrics and dermatology? The position of the dermatologist calls for especial consideration. It is conceded that surgery does not claim him. If we follow the Vienna school in assuming that the skin is an organ, as the eye or the ear, he would be an exponent of one of the narrower fields of specialism. If we should adhere to the tenets of the London school and expect the attention to be directed to the study of systemic conditions, which that school has emphasized, he could readily be enrolled as a practitioner of internal medicine. In fact, one of the greatest names of that department of the healing art was Hutchinson, whose fame rests largely upon a disease, syphilis, which is clearly in the field of internal medicine. If we are influenced by the Paris school, our decision must rest somewhat in doubt. However, this is a question upon which the Congress eventually must take official action. A definition which is predicated solely upon exclusion is neither logical nor final. The schismatic operations being repeated, the remaining moiety might readily become negligible. A definition must be not only inclusive, but exclusive as well.
