Ther German Medical Association is the federation of the 17 state chambers of physicians.


The German Medical Association was established in its current form in 1947. Being granted a license to practice medicine in Germany entails compulsory membership of a chamber of physicians. All of the 357,000 professionally active physicians in Germany belong to the state chamber of physicians in the state where they work. Each state has its own chamber of physicians. The only state to have two chambers is North Rhine-Westphalia, which is divided into North Rhine and Westphalia-Lippe.
