Part of the Philosophy and Medicine book series (PHME, volume 135)


For the development of a busy professional life and as an informational organ for the whole medical profession and a wider public, the establishment of a medical professional press was of great importance. Before the National Socialist revolution there were two medical newspapers; one entitled the “Aerztliche Vereinblatt,” which was the organ of the German Physicians’ Association and served the professional and ethical concerns of the medical profession; the other, by the name of the “Aerztliche Mitteilungen,” was produced by the Hartmannbund; it represented the economic professional interests of the medical community. In addition to these there was a long list of local and provincial medical papers.
