In 2012, the three former organisations "Vereinigung der Deutschen Medizinischen Fach- und Standespresse e. V.", "Arbeitskreis Medizinpublizisten/Klub der Wissenschaftsjournalisten e.

The association is therefore the oldest (founded in 1894) and, with over 700 members, the largest medical journalist association in Germany.
