Doctor of the Day

The Doctor of the Day program began in the early 1970s.

During the South Carolina Legislative Session, South Carolina physicians have the opportunity to get involved by serving as the State House doctor of the day through the Doctor of the Day program established by the SCMA.

The Doctor of the Day program began in the early 1970’s, and since then has ensured that a physician is made available each day that the General Assembly meets to attend to the health care needs, both large and small, of those participating in the day’s State House activities.

With a goal to increase the presence of the medical profession in the eyes of South Carolina lawmakers, the program was put into action by the South Carolina Medical Association and has proven to be a benefit to both professions.
