New Law Pertaining to "Chambers of Physicians"
The Prussian law pertaining to Aerztekammern, or "chambers of physicians," which dates from 1887, was modified by the landtag of Prussia and went into effect in its changed form, January 1 of this year. The new law places greater emphasis on the need or duty of the state and communal authorities affording the chambers of physicians opportunities for expressing their views on questions pertaining to medicine, and particularly on problems affecting the public health service. Chambers of physicians are granted the right to incorporate in their constitutions welfare measures for the benefit of physicians or surviving members of their families. However, constitutional provisions establishing welfare arrangements, which purpose to furnish insurance for physicians or their families and which presuppose the right to appeal to the courts for the adjudication of claims, must be approved by the minister having jurisdication in the case.
