Physician of the Day
The IAFP Needs You!
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.
Physician of the Day Program
The Indiana Academy of Family Physicians and the Indiana State Medical Association will once again sponsor the Physician of the Day program at the 2019 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 legislators and their staff 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.
We are now scheduling physician volunteers for the months of February and April, 2019. The program operates Mondays through Thursdays. We are scheduling through the end of April but will update our calendar if it is determined that the session will end earlier than April 30.
The Physician of the Day is able to park free of charge in the statehouse parking lot, and a lunch voucher is provided. We also reimburse mileage for anyone coming from outside Marion and the surrounding counties (Boone, Hamilton, Madison, Hancock, Shelby, Johnson, Morgan, and Hendricks).
