The Decree Licensing Physicians for the National Health Service excludes Jewish doctors, effectively preventing them from practicing medicine in Nazi Germany. Prohibiting Jewish physicians from practicing medicine on Christians was a common restriction placed upon Jews by various popes through the Middle Ages.

A Jewish presence among Christians was abhorred and Jews themselves were treated like carriers of a pestilence who had to be quarantined lest they infect healthy people. Christians generally tried to avoid "infection" from Jews by walling them off in ghettos and restricting their ability to go outside them, though restrictions like this were also used to prevent too much familiar interaction between Jews and Christians.
