What is NC Doctors' Day?

March 30, National Doctors’ Day, is a time to recognize and celebrate the hard work of physicians – all of the many medical specialties make up a remarkable community, coming together as one to help and heal patients. The observance dates back to 1933 and was officially established by Congress in 1990.

Now the North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) is beginning a new, homegrown tradition with North Carolina Doctors’ Day. To mark the event, NCMS is sponsoring the 2016 North Carolina Doctor of the Year Award, allowing patients and the public to honor our state's physicians who are:

Passionate about keeping patients happy and healthy
Experts in using life-changing treatments to give patients the best care
And making a positive impact in the community

So many of us have stories about a certain dedicated physician who made a huge positive impact in their patients’ lives, or even our own.

Here’s your chance to help those great doctors shine.

About the Award

You’ll help your doctor get a chance to win $5,000 to further their professional mission – which will enhance health care in North Carolina.
