OBJECTIVE: The "National Competency-Based Catalogue of Learning Objectives for Medicine" ("Nationaler Kompetenzbasierter Lernzielkatalog Medizin,"NKLM) is a core curriculum developed for medical training. Here, the classic division by discipline and organ system has been abandoned, which requires each discipline to define its own core curriculum in specific catalogues of learning objectives. This article presents such a catalogue for Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy.

METHOD: A two-step DELPHI-method was used to survey faculty representatives for Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy. It reflected the discipline-specific university catalogues of learning objectives as well as the NKLM. A catalogue of learning objectives was then developed and approved.

RESULTS: The catalogue consists of two parts: (1) a 12-module core curriculum for Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy and (2) selected interdisciplinary learning objectives from the NKLM with relevant participation of the discipline in ten modules.

DISCUSSION: For the first time in Germany, this article presents a catalogue of learning objectives for Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy that is agreed upon by the relevant representatives. This enables the integration of psychosomatic and psychotherapeutic teaching contents from a department into the overall curriculum as required by the NKLM. In the future, methods should be established to allow regular updating and further development of this catalogue.
