Serve as Doctor of the Day

The SDSMA's Doctor of the Day program is a huge success every legislative session.

During the legislative session, the SDSMA commits to providing a physician member to serve as Doctor of the Day for the South Dakota State Legislature. This volunteer commitment involves one day of service at the State Capitol in Pierre by providing basic medical assistance to legislators and staff as needed.

Doctors of the Day have the unique opportunity to interact with legislators on the House and Senate floors and get a first-hand look at the legislative process and how it affects the practice of medicine.

Your presence at the Capitol shows legislators not only your expertise but also your concern for the health of South Dakotans. 

Please consider being Doctor of the Day for one day during the legislative session! 

Those interested in serving during the 2021 legislative session can see the available dates in the links below. Please contact Mark East at to sign up.
