This is a list of Wikipedia articles on Nazi medical doctors (M.D. or physicians).

When the Nazi government came to power it purged Germany of its 6,000 to 7,000 Jewish doctors.[1] Reportedly more than 7% of all German physicians became members of the Nazi party during World War Two, a far higher percentage than the general population. While most of these doctors were physicians, some were psychiatrists, and some held doctorates (PhD.'s) in biology, anthropology, or similarly related fields. In 1942 more than 38,000 German doctors had joined the Nazi party.

"The participation in the ‘betrayal of Hippocrates’ had a broad basis within the German medical profession. Without the doctors' active help, the Holocaust could not have happened." wrote E Ernst in the International Journal of Epidemiology.[2]

Killing and experimentation became medical procedures as they were performed by licensed doctors. The excuse that there wasn't any international law to differentiate between legal and illegal human experimentation, was used in the Doctors' trial. Due to the lack of international laws to govern doctors, the Nuremberg Code (1947) was created.

After the war the West German Medical Association blamed Nazi atrocities on a small group of 350 criminal doctors.[3][4][5][6][7]
