    From the presentation of the speakers:

    Per Fink, MD, PhD, Dr.Med.Sc.

    Director, The Research Clinic for Functional Disorders and Psychosomatics
    Professor, Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark

    Prof. Per Fink heads The Research Clinic for Functional Disorders, Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark, an interdisciplinary department focusing primarily on research in functional disorders as well as on developing treatment programmes. The clinic is highly specialized and treats patients with functional disorders, which includes functional somatic syndromes and health anxiety. The department employs around 45 researchers/clinicians and administrative staff and receives patients from all over Denmark. Per Fink's research is centred around diagnostics and classification of functional somatic syndromes and health anxiety, and he has developed research criteria for these that are now widely used by other researchers. Another focus area has been development of a treatment program for managing patients with functional disorders in primary care. This program is now integrated in the specialist training for primary care physicians. Per Fink has an extensive publication list and is considered one of the leading researchers within this area.

    Isn’t Colombia one of the NIH funded biomedical research places? Is this event actually under the auspices of the Uni or just some organisation hiring their premises. Hopefully some attendees will ask some pointed questions.

    Haha, so is a Psychosomatics Conference where people only believe that they are there and then do a talk on that basis? I suppose it would save on travel ;)

    Is it just me or does that sound like a gathering for those suffering psychosomatically rather than those aiming to treat?

    Maybe the conference organizers should have a screening of Unrest, before Per Fink's talk.
