Part V: On the Essence and Work of the Physician in the National Socialist State

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


We have up to now spoken of professional, state and party organizations in whose context the activity of the physician unfolds and plays out. We have also already brought clearly to expression how difficult and full of responsibility the profession of medicine is. So we want now to consider which presuppositions the young Volk comrade who wants to devote himself to the medical profession must fulfill, which demands must be met, and what responsibilities must he be up to, in order to be able to meet the expectations of the honorable and richly responsible calling as a physician of the National Socialist Volk community.
