The definition of an internist

I'm always on the lookout for a good definition of Internal Medicine. Here's one from the C. Thorpe Ray Internal Medicine Society at Tulane. Not perfect but one of the better definitions I've seen, and I particularly like this (my emphasis):

The internist is the specialist who is often called in the hospital and/or clinic to aid in diagnosing complex adult patient presentations involving multiple organ systems.
