Core Competencies for Fellowship Training in Psychosomatic Medicine: A Collaborative Effort by the APA Council on Psychosomatic Medicine, the ABPN Psychosomatic Committee, and The Academy of Psychosomatic Medicine
The American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) officially recognized Psychosomatic Medicine as a subspecialty of Psychiatry in 2003. In May 2008, both the ABPN and the ACGME approved the following Core Competencies for Fellowship Training in Psychosomatic Medicine (PM). These PM Core Competencies will serve as a guideline for the training experience, for the construction of fellowship programs in psychosomatic medicine, and as a self-study guide for all PM fellows.
