News: Jan 24, 2020

The Swedish weekly news magazine FOKUS (Focus) has decided that Christopher Gillberg is SWEDE OF THE YEAR 2019 IN MEDICINE.

The jury motivated its decision in the following way:
This year´s Swede of the year in medicine is a world authority. Through his work he has broken down taboos surrounding neuropsychiatric disorders and problems, particularly when it comes to children and young people. Throughout his working life he has unfailingly renewed and refined diagnostic methods. In a time with increasing mental health problems he contributes working tools, but also recommendations to tread carefully when using such tools and in contact with patients. Whether or not it is a question about patient confidentiality, diagnostic work or transgender biological treatments he follows his ethical compass rather than the trend of the time. Christopher Gillberg, Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is SWEDE OF THE YEAR IN MEDICINE 2019.
