Gustav von Bergmann
In 1903 he received his doctorate at Strasbourg, and afterwards worked at the 2nd medical hospital in Berlin under Friedrich Kraus (1858-1936). In 1916 he became a full professor of internal medicine in Marburg, and later a professor at Frankfurt am Main (from 1920), the Berlin Charité (from 1927) and Munich (from 1946).
He was a proponent of "functional pathology", and is considered to be one of the founders of psychosomatic medicine. His research involved investigations into gastro-intestinal ulcers, hypertension and studies of the autonomic nervous system. Today, the "Gustav-von-Bergmann-Medaille" is the highest honor awarded by the Deutschen Gesellschaft für Innere Medizin (German Society of Internal Medicine).
Bergmann was co-publisher of the multi-volume Handbuch der normalen und pathologischen Physiologie (Textbook of Normal and Pathological Physiology). Other noted works of his include:
- Funktionelle Pathologie (Functional Pathology), 1932
- Neues Denken in der Medizin (New Reasoning in Medicine), 1947
