Founded in 1904 by E. von Bergmann, M. Kirchner and R. Kutner, The Journal of Evidence and Quality in Healthcare (ZEFQ) is one of the oldest German-language medical journals. Originally published as “Zeitschrift für ärztliche Fortbildung” [“Journal of Continuing Medical Education”], the founding editors intended for ZEFQ to provide a platform for interdisciplinary medical education. ZEFQ continues that tradition today by complementing the specialized publication platforms of various medical fields and of continuing medical education programs.
