On the 1st International Congress 2007 at Isfahan University, the scientific board held many discussions on the project of a “Development of psychosomatic Medicine in Iran”. The name of “Razi” was chosen because, approximately 1200 years ago, Razi’s therapeutic interventions were already based on a combined biological, social and cultural concept. Later on, Avicenna would follow this concept.
In the course of the project, the idea of founding an international association was developed further. On 7th April, 2009, the “Association Razi for Medicine and Psychosomatics” has been registered at Amtsgericht Siegen (Local Court Siegen) with the registration number 2943.
