The Association of German Works Physicians (Verband Deutscher Betriebs- und Werksärzte e.V. – VDBW) is the professional association of German occupational physicians and has been representing the interests of its approximately 3,000 medical members all over Germany for 60 years. The organised medical colleagues come from all fields of occupational medical activities, for example from international large-scale companies, administrations, occupational medical centres, or from free-lance self-owned offices.
The VDBW consults and supports you regarding any questions in the field of occupational medical activities and is an accepted and demanded contact for the fields of politics, economy, and society regarding the topic of occupational healthcare. On its homepage it offers, among others, a targeted company doctor search feature.
