Dr. Reuter received his medical degree and his research doctorate from Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz/Germany. In July of 1988, he moved to England where he worked in the Department for Orthopaedic Surgery at the James Paget Hospital in Great Yarmouth.
After publishing his first book in early 1989, Dr. Reuter co-founded a medical magazine for students and contributed to other publications. However, soon his main focus was on compiling medical, dental, and scientific dictionaries and databases for print and digital publications.
In 1998, Dr. Reuter moved to Florida and founded Reuter Medical Inc., a medical and scientific reference publishing company. Overall, he has published or contributed to more than 100 dictionaries and other publications that have been published in six languages and 19 countries.
In 2010, Dr. Reuter set out to fulfill his life-long ambition to teach at a university and to help students achieve their dream of becoming health professionals. He loves teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and tries to inspire students to push themselves to success when courses get more challenging. His efforts were rewarded with the 2016 Excellence in Teaching Award of the Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success.
Dr. Reuter is active in his community and has served on the Board of Directors for a nonprofit working on public health issues in sub-Saharan Africa. He currently devotes his time to volunteering as the faculty advisor for and chair of the Editorial Board of Aquila - The FGCU Student Research Journal.
Dr. Reuter is the proud father of three wonderful daughters. When he's not teaching, reading or writing, he enjoys cycling, tennis, soccer, football, chocolate, fresh crispy bread and German beer.
