The special outpatient department for gastroenterological psychosomatics primarily serves the initial psychosomatic assessment and psychosomatic care of those affected with chronic inflammatory and functional gastrointestinal diseases, as well as those affected with hepatitis C. The outpatient clinic is run as an outpatient clinic.
The outpatient staff (currently 2 psychologists and a specialist) also take care of the inpatient area via consultation requests.
Allocation mode: Allocations from the AKH/inpatient area are made via consultation requests, which are sent by fax to the house flap 47350 (with the reference "To the psychosomatic outpatient clinic"). Outpatients receive an initial appointment via the control center 7i on telephone number 40400 47500 (only with a referral to a specialist and referral diagnosis), which takes place with the psychologist or the head of the outpatient clinic/specialist.
The focus of the special outpatient clinic is an initial psychosomatic internal exploration (50 to 100 minutes). On this basis, further therapeutic offers or consultations are made and a written, if possible also an oral report is sent to the referring physicians. If there is an indication, further (organic and psychodiagnostic) examinations are also arranged. The therapeutic offer includes:
- Internal-psychosomatic initial exploration
- linical psychological diagnostics
- Clinical psychological counseling and treatment
- Focused medical consultations
- Supportive or psychodynamically oriented brief psychotherapy
- Long-term psychological and psychotherapeutic care of patients with severe chronic gastrointestinal complaints and diseases
- Gut-directed hypnotherapy (predominantly in a group) in selected patients with functional or inflammatory bowel diseases

Psychosomatic research projects with integrated patient care are also carried out in the outpatient clinic.
With their consent, selected patients are used for practical teaching for students (as part of the elective lecture for gastroenterological psychosomatics) and for doctors in the form of "participant observation" (as part of the curriculum for psychosomatic and psychotherapeutic medicine of the Medical Association.
