Internal medicine expert witness candidates are usually board certified internal medicine physicians, clinical professors, cardiologists, nurse practitioners, and/or serve as legal nurse consultants. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a medical expert witness with prior expert witness testimony experience.
Internal medicine deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of internal diseases. Subspecialties include Allergy Asthma and Immunology, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Oncology, Nephrology, and Pulmonology, among others.

Litigation support matters requiring an internal medicine expert witness often involve a medical malpractice case, personal injury, standards of care, or medical negligence.
