Many of the exciting conceptual and scientific advances in the field of psychosomatic medicine are not taught in United States medical schools. This article, based on the Presidential Address given at the Annual Meeting of the American Psychosomatic Society in Phoenix, Arizona in March 2003, reviews the rationale for integrating psychosomatic medicine into medical curricula, identifies educational needs, proposes a core curriculum, and suggests how American Psychosomatic Society members can be instrumental in curriculum development and implementation.
