Founded in 1974, the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry is a non-profit world wide organisation composed of 63 National Societies of Biological Psychiatry and individual members representing professionals from over 70 countries.
With this multitude of countries represented in its worldwide community, the World Federation has built an international network of opinion leaders, the majority of which are key opinion-leaders in the practice of biological psychiatry.
The principle objectives of WFSBP are:
To foster and encourage scientific research and advancement in the field of biological psychiatry
To improve the quality of training spanning all the biological psychiatry sciences
To promote education and achieve the highest level of knowledge and understanding within the field
To provide information and guidance to all institutions, societies or individuals with an interest in biological psychiatry
To establish, build, and maintain solid collaboration with international and national organisations related to biological psychiatry
Educational activities, regional, international and world congresses, the interactive website www. wfsbp.org, and The World Journal of Biological Psychiatry build the World Federation’s portfolio and insure its world-wide influence. The development of world-wide treatment guide- lines is one of WFSBP’s main areas of international leadership.
Year after year, more and more professionals choose to join the World Federation’s Biological Psychiatry arena and enjoy its exclusive educational and networking opportunities. In the coming years WFSBP is looking forward welcoming over 15 new eminent member societies from different parts of the world.
