The German Association for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS) e.V. promotes teaching, research and health care and therefore offers documentary, informational, biometric and epidemiological methods as a "cross-sectional subject" to all medical disciplines.

The activities and topic-related work of the GMDS are mainly carried out in:
Working Groups (WG) - Working groups have predominantly methodologically oriented focal points.
Task Groups (TG) - Task groups have the task of linking the methodological knowledge of the departments, sections, project groups and working groups with the various medical specialties. They are intended to promote applications and foster interdisciplinary cooperation with the medical associations.
Project Groups (PG) - Project groups are the predecessors of working groups, whose work ends when the tasks are completed or no later than three years after their establishment. If necessary, project groups can be transferred to working groups.
Presidium Commissions (PC) - Presidium Commissions are established by the Presidium for special tasks.
