National Doctors' Day is a time to celebrate physicians. We want to hear from you about doctors who have played a pivotal role in your medical career or have made an impact on your health or the health of a loved one. During March and April, we will honor these inspiring physicians.

What You Can Do—Tell Us Your Stories

Do you know an inspiring physician who is giving their time and expertise as a mentor, colleague or community leader? Let us know and celebrate their story by doing the following:

  • Send an Email
    Email us the physician’s name, contact information and why you believe the physician has been inspirational.
  • Donate to the AMA Foundation
    Make a donation in honor of a physician, and we will send a personal note of recognition to your honoree.

We are excited to share some of your stories on the National Doctors' Day testimonials page. Make sure to check back regularly and connect with us on Twitter and Facebook where you can share and read stories about other outstanding physicians.
