Journal History

Medicine and Pharmacy Reports is a quarterly journal of medicine and pharmacy, the second oldest in Romania. It was founded under the name “Clujul Medical”  in February 1920, shortly after the Romanian University of Cluj-Napoca was created. Until 1940 it was printed each month. During the Vienna Diktat (1941-1945) it appeared at Sibiu, as “Ardealul Medical”, then again in Cluj, using the original title. Due to an order of the Education Ministry, between 1949 and 1957 it ceased to be printed. Since 1957, the periodical was published, without interruption, grace to the efforts of the “Iuliu Hatieganu” University of Medicine and Pharmacy. Also since 1957, 4 issues are printed each year (more than 500 copies per issue printed). In 2019, starting with the first issue the journal changed its name to Medicine and Pharmacy Reports
