Medicine (also called conventional, scientific, or mainstream medicine, especially when compared with alternative medicine or traditional medicine, UK English Listen/ˈmɛdsɨn/, US English Listen/ˈmɛdɨsɨn/) is the field that mixes applied science with art in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. It encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness in human beings.
