MedChi schedules physicians to volunteer as the MedChi Physician of the Day in the Maryland State House's First Aid Room in Annapolis during the 2024 Maryland General Assembly Legislative Session. The First Aid Room, located in the Maryland State House, is equipped with oxygen, a hospital bed, wheelchair, crutches, thermometers, stethoscope, and a blood pressure cuff. There are also a variety of over-the-counter medications provided including aspirin, cough and cold preparations, and antacids. A nurse is also on the premises every day to assist the MedChi Physician of the Day, giving the physician more time to spend in the chambers observing the Senate and House.
Emeritus physicians who have an active license, are also encouraged to participate. Time slots to volunteer include Monday evenings from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM throughout the 2024 Maryland General Assembly Legislative Session. Furthermore, there will also be a schedule of hearings and meetings that deal with health-related issues posted in the first aid room. The MedChi Physician of the Day is encouraged to attend these meetings, as well.
