Should internal medicine and family practice be merged?

That’s the topic of our latest Medscape Roundtable Discussion, which opens with a video blog by Robert W. Morrow, MD.

I expressed the view I’ve offered before here---that general internal medicine is fading fast, and that the merger proposal represents the final finishing blow unless the American College of Physicians and the Society of General Internal Medicine do a better job of advocating for internal medicine as a unique specialty.

A Medscape poll is linked on the video blog page where readers can vote on the issue.
