Medicine is a science that aims at preventing and treating disease and restoring human health. The father of medicine is Hippocrates, an ancient Greek philosopher who, along with his colleague Claudius Galen, laid the groundwork for a modern and rational approach to healing.
Today, medicine is divided into three main branches. The first branch is the division into sciences, such as anatomy, biochemistry, biophysics, physiology, genetics and 13 other fields. The second is the division into medical specializations, which include surgery and internal medicine. The last branch of the division is the division of medicine into interdisciplinary fields such as medical ethics, medical informatics and forensic medicine.
As the names of the medical fields themselves sound quite complicated, we can also reasonably conclude that medical texts are quite complex, mainly because the terminology is largely unknown to laypeople.
