Abstract
Psychosomatic medicine is a part of medicine which is to find the effect of psychological, behavioural, and medical factors on the human body and disease. In the early 20th century, the idea of psychogenesis had been developed and resulted in the concept of psychosomatic disease which was believed to be caused by psychologi-cal factors. However a multifactorial model of illness developed and it allowed illness to be viewed as a result of biopsychosocial interactions. The following have been highlighted by consultation-liaison psychiatry. Psychoso-matic medicine has addressed stress and psychiatric factors which affect the etiology, course, and treatment of medical disorders. Moreover it contributes the growth of other related disciplines such as psychoneuroendocrinol-ogy, psychoimmunology, behavioral medicine, health psychology and quality of life research. Nowadays, psycho-somatic field becomes enlarged because medical and surgical departments have been developed rapidly, and re-search methods and tools have brought forth rapid progress and advance in medical science. Therefore the author reviews the past and present psychosomatic researches and suggests the future of psychosomatic research in Korea.
