Currently, the new psychosomatic society is working with the Accreditation Commission of the Ministry for Health on the content and concept of the discipline. A network of psychosomatic departments is being created and a system of specialized education for physicians in the field of psychosomatics is being prepared. The doctors should become the first link in a chain that can help patients with complicated psychosomatic diseases.
