Welcome to WFSBP

Founded in 1974 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry is a non-profit, international organization composed of over 60 national societies of biological psychiatry, representing over 4,500 professionals.
As a world authority on biological psychiatry, WFSBP is also highly committed to pioneering and promoting the highest levels of education and dissemination within the field.


Prof. Dr. Tudor Udriştoiu served as Vice President of the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry for a 4-year term (2013-2017). He was a great man in many respects. Besides having served faithfully WFSBP, he had been President of the Dolj College of Physicians, President of the Romanian Society of Biological Psychiatry and Psychopharmacology, Member of the Psychiatric Commission of the Ministry of Health. Moreover, throughout his career, Professor Udriştoiu was the manager of the Clinical Neuropsychiatry Hospital of Craiova, as well as the "Victor Babes" Clinical Hospital in Craiova, while since 1991 until 2016 he has led the Psychiatric Department of the Craiova Neuropsychiatric Hospital. Also, he had been distinguished as Senator in the central government of his country.
Professor Tudor Udriştoiu had an extraordinary scientific activity and reformed the way in which Psychiatry was viewed in the Romanian medical system. His colleagues, doctors at the Neuropsychiatry Hospital of Craiova, state that their country’s medical system has lost one of the best doctors today. As far as his many colleagues around the world are concerned, they have lost the foremost Romanian Psychiatrist who kept representing his country in a number of international scientific associations for several decades; above all, however, they have lost a great friend who will be remembered dearly by anyone who had the privilege of knowing him well. All of us will keep the memory of the sweetness of his character in combination with the firmness of his managerial style as an invaluable heritage.
