Together for a better patient care

Deutscher Ärzteverlag was founded in 1949, and is one of the leading medical specialist publishers in the German speaking region. As an innovative media company it combines tradition and innovation into a homogeneous product portfolio. The publisher publishes professional policy magazines, publications from diverse specialist associations and other newspapers and magazines in the healthcare market. Moreover, the publisher has strong online brands that optimally supplement the product portfolio. The publishing range is rounded off by medical books, organisational resources for practices and clinics and training programmes for various fields of disease. The publisher also stands for trade with medical products and art. The publisher’s stockholders, each holding a 50 percent share, are the two umbrella organisations of the German medical profession – the German Medical Association and the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians.

Combining tradition and innovation

Strong brands in medicine: a combination which surely makes Deutscher Ärzteverlag unique. Because of the strong bond with its stockholders, the German Medical Association and the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians, Deutscher Ärzteverlag, in connection with its subsidiaries and company shares as a media group, can put high-reach print and online brands with higher than average credibility into the field.

On the one hand, this ensures wide target group coverage enabling opinion leaders and decision makers to be addressed by professional publications such as Deutsches Ärzteblatt (German Medical Journal) – the leading specialist title in the area of medicine. On the other hand, subject-specific titles and special issues and special productions, topic-based specials and online products ensure a particularly precise peak and target group address without coverage loss.
