As part of our ongoing legislative relations, the Oklahoma State Medical Association manages the Oklahoma State Capitol’s Doctor of the Day program. This program offers a great opportunity for our members to meet their state legislators and talk to them about issues that matter to the “House of Medicine”. Each Doctor of the Day is at the Capitol for the day to handle minor medical situations (think aspirin and Band-Aids). But more importantly, participants can serve as the face of OSMA and visit with elected officials about the impact their votes have on Oklahoman’s health.
Dates fill up quickly. If you are interested in serving as Doctor of the Day, please contact the TCMS office at 918.743.6184 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your date.
In addition, the TCMS Student-Resident Council has asked if any physician volunteering as Doctor of the Day would allow a student or resident to join them to the Capitol. Please let our staff know if you would be willing to have a student or resident join you.
