Duodecim’s aim is to develop the professional skills of doctors and to support their clinical practice.
The Finnish Medical Society Duodecim is a scientific association established in 1881 to develop the professional skills and clinical practice of doctors through continuing education, publications and grants. The Society’s membership comprises more than 22,000 doctors and medical students and almost 100 member associations.
Duodecim Publishing Company Ltd is a company owned by the Society. It publishes information content intended for healthcare professionals as study material and in support of everyday activities in their work. Members of the public interested in medicine and health can find reliable and easy-to-use information in the company’s published material on health and illnesses, not only in general reference books but also in online material and services integrated into healthcare systems.
The activities today are guided by Duodecim’s traditional role – going back more than 135 years – as a publisher of reliable and easy-to-use medical information. Our content is created through collaboration with the country’s best medical experts.
