Doctor of the Day
Wednesdays are covered by the Bismarck Center for Family Medicine physicians.
The Doctor of the Day program is a unique opportunity for NDMA members. The program gives physicians an opportunity to network with legislators, government officials and local leaders, while serving in the capacity of Doctor of the Day.
The Doctor of the Day provides primary care services to legislators and staff right in the capitol. The program features it's very own exam room equipped with basic exam equipment and over-the-counter medication. You do not need to practice family medicine to volunteer; many specialties such as thoracic surgeons, urologists, orthopaedic surgeons, hospitalists, and more volunteer for this service.
Coverage is needed Monday through Friday and hours are flexible, but can best be served from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm.
The Doctor of the Day physician is provided a pager, allowing you the flexibility to observe the legislative session or attend capitol events, or both! Doctor of the Day physicians are not expected to respond to medical emergencies.
These are important services appreciated by legislators and provide physicians with significant visibility.
Hotel accommodations will be provided as necessary to those arriving the night before your Doctor of the Day service.
