Doctor of the Day

state.legislative.capitol.logoThe MAFP is looking for physicians to serve as the Doctor of the Day at the MS State Capitol. This is a unique way to make family medicine visible at the Capitol. You will see patients for a variety of common ailments in the Capitol Medical Clinic staffed by a nurse, and equipped with a state-of-the-art telemedicine hook-up.

As Doctor of the Day, physicians are granted floor privileges to both chambers of the State Legislature and may be introduced in the House and the Senate. The Regular Legislative Session lasts from January to March. Monday and Friday are half days, Monday afternoon and Friday morning. You can sign up to serve on any day open on the calendar. You must be a member of MSMA since they sponsor/fund the program. MORE INFORMATION
