Preventative medicine is a medical specialty which focuses on the protection and maintenance of a person’s health and well-being in order to prevent the development of disease and disability as well as a person’s demise. Doctors who practice preventative medicine use their skills and knowledge to promote good health among individuals, populations, and communities. There are three categories of preventative medicine: aerospace, occupational, and public/general health medicine.
Each section of preventative medicine focuses on a particular aspect. The details of the areas of concern for each category are as follows:
Medical health screenings, annual physical exams, general laboratory tests, and reproductive health exams are all forms of preventative medicine. The goal is to keep a patient’s body functioning as well as possible in order to prevent a disease or condition from ever occurring.
