Abstract

The integration of psychosomatics/psychotherapy into the medical curriculum has not yet resolved the majority of problems in conveying a bio-psycho-social perspective to medical students. A survey, conducted 1992/93 at the university departments of psychosomatics-psychotherapy in Germany yielded that there is no true integration of a bio-psycho-social perspective into the curriculum up until now. A second investigation with students of the university of Ulm in 1993 revealed that there is substantial variety in the quality of teaching and that improvement is possible with resources already available. Consequences with regard to changes to be expected by the 8th renewal of the present teaching regulations ("Approbationsordnung") are discussed. A pilot project aiming at the integration of preclinical and clinical aspects of the psychosocial aspects of medicine is outlined.
