100th anniversary issue guide: Celebrating a century of physician excellence

Medical Economics JournalMedical Economics October 2023
Volume 100
Issue 10

What's inside the Medical Economics 100th anniversary issue.

October 2023 is a special month for Medical Economics. A century ago, in October 1923, the first issue of this brand was published, and we've published continuously ever since.

We knew that we needed to celebrate this milestone, so the Medical Economics editorial and design staff has spent months crafting this special 100th anniversary issue. We put the focus on you, our physician readers, and did a deep dive into all the ways medicine has changed over the last century.

Below you'll find the table of contents for this special issue. Click any of the links to get to that article/section, or scan all of our anniversary content at our 100 years page.

We put extra emphasis on the print book for this issue. If you would like to see the digital version of the issue, download the pdf here.
