MAG’s Doctor of the Day Program
Medical Association of Georgia (MAG) “Doctor of the Day” volunteers work in the Medical Aid Station at the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta during the legislative session each year.
They provide free minor medical care to legislators and their staff, and they are introduced in the House and Senate at the beginning of each legislative day.
Becoming a MAG Doctor of the Day
- Doctor of the Day volunteers should arrive at the Capitol no later than 9 a.m. They should go directly to the Medical Aid Station on the second floor, and they should plan on being at the Capitol until 5 p.m. – though legislative days often end sooner.
- Doctor of the Day volunteers are encouraged to bring sample medications and a prescription pad.
- Doctor of the Day volunteers receive a complimentary parking pass for the day.
- MAG staff will always be available to answer any questions.
The Doctor of the Day program is a non-political service that MAG provides for Georgia legislators. Volunteers do not serve as lobbyists when they serve as a Doctor of the Day.
“In addition to providing care for our public servants, the Doctor of the Day program helps to solidify the Medical Association of Georgia’s reputation as the leading voice for physicians in every specialty and practice setting in the state.” - Michael E. Greene, M.D., MAG Council on Legislation Chair (Family Medicine)
“MAG’s Doctor of the Day program is a rewarding experience – one that me and my colleagues look forward to each and every year.” - Rana K. Munna, M.D. (Internal Medicine)
“The Medical Association of Georgia’s Doctor of the Day program gives me the opportunity to support my profession and to express my gratitude to my fellow physicians.” - Steven L. Sween, M.D. (Anesthesiology)
