Physician of the DayThe IAFP Needs You!
Plan Now to Serve as Physician of the Day in 2014
Interested in politics? There is a reason many of our physicians of the day serve year after year, because serving as the physician of the day puts you in the heart of the action at the Indiana Statehouse.
The Indiana Academy of Family Physicians and the Indiana State Medical Association will once again sponsor the Physician of the Day program at the 2013 General Assembly. Your assistance is needed! This interesting and fun program allows you to observe the legislative process firsthand, meet with your state legislators, and leave a great impression about family medicine on the General Assembly.
IAFP members can volunteer to spend one or more days at the Statehouse during the legislative session. As the Physician of the Day you will provide episodic primary care services for the legislators and their staffs during the time the state legislature is in session. On days when the full House and Senate are in session the Physician of the Day is introduced on the floor of both houses. Your day at the Statehouse will last from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The IAFP's Physician of the Day program was recently featured in an article in the national AAFP News Now publication. Click here

We will soon begin scheduling physician volunteers for the months of January and March 2014. The program operates Mondays through Thursdays.
