The Military Medical Journal is the oldest national periodical devoted to medical issues; it has been published since January 1823.

The initiative to establish the Military Medical Journal belongs to a prominent figure in military medicine in the first half of the 19th century, Chief Military Medical Inspector of the Russian Army, President of the Medical and Surgical Academy Yakov Vasilievich Villie (1768–1854).

For many years, the Military Medical Journal was the only representative of Russia's periodical scientific medical literature. Over the years, he has turned into a priceless treasury of domestic medicine, which has absorbed many generations of physicians' vast experience. Until 1917, the magazine was headed, as a rule, by well-known military doctors, professors, and prominent organizers of the military medical service: Ya.V.Villie, P.A.Charukovskii, S.F.Khotovitskii, P.A.Naranovich, E.V.Pelikan, Ya.A.Chistovich, N.I.Kozlov, S.P.Lovtsov, N.P.Ivanov, A.I.Belyaev, A.S.Tauber, I.F.Rapchevskii.

In the 20th century until 1947, the responsible editors of the magazine were M.I.Baranov, E.I.Smirnov, N.I.Zavalishin. Subsequently, the Military Medical Journal was headed by full-time editors: in 1949–1955. - V.V.Skvortsov, in 1955-1960. - D.I.Troitskii, in 1960-1968. - I.E.Karpov, in 1968-1978. - A.V.Voropai, in 1978-1992. - V.V.Belozerov, in 1992-2007. - L.L.
