Physician of the Day

MedChi schedules physicians to volunteer as "Physician of the Day" in the First Aid Room in Annapolis during Legislative Session.  The First Aid Room, located in the 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 Physician of the Day, giving the physician more time to spend in the chambers observing the Senate and House.  Physicians are asked to bring their own prescription pads.

Emeritus Physicians who have an active license, are also encouraged to participate. Time slots to volunteer include Monday evenings from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. throughout the session, as most legislators leave after lunch on Friday.  Furthermore, there will also be a schedule of hearings and meetings that deal with health-related issues posted in the First Aid Room.  The Physician of the Day is encouraged to attend these meetings, as well.

Are you interested in volunteering to serve as Physician of the Day in the Maryland State House during the 2020 Legislative Session?  If so, please click here to print out the form.
