Medicine encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by prevention and treatment of illness. Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics and medical technology to diagnose, treat and prevent injury and disease, typically through pharmaceuticals or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints and traction, medical devices, biologics and ionizing radiation. In modern clinical practice, physicians personally assess patients in order to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease using clinical judgment. The doctor-patient relationship typically begins an interaction with an examination of the patient's medical history and medical record, followed by a medical interview and a physical examination. After examination for signs and interviewing for symptoms, the doctor may order medical tests like blood tests, a biopsy, or prescribe pharmaceutical drugs or other therapies. Differential diagnosis methods help to rule out conditions based on the information provided.
Medical research empowers to establish an understanding of the cellular, molecular and physiological mechanisms underpinning human health and disease.
