March 25th to March 31st is National Physicians Week! This week is the perfect time to celebrate and support the physicians in your life. C & A has ideas for how you can celebrate the doctors in your life today:
Give Your Doctor a Red Carnation
Historically, doctors have been honored with the gift of a red carnation. This tradition started on the last day of March in 1933. Eudora Brown Almond, when the wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, recommended that doctors be celebrated on this day, which was the anniversary of the first use of anesthesia by Dr. Crawford W. Long in Jefferson, Georgia, in 1842.
Write a Thank-You Note
In 2020, a survey of physicians showed that 15% found that they had concerns about working long hours, and 14% dealt with complex patients. Additionally, increasing demand for the fulfillment of physician roles means that the United States could face a shortage of up to 124,000 physicians by 2034. Working as a physician is demanding and challenging work. Many doctors do not discuss any burnout they are experiencing due to concerns that the board could revoke certifications and licensure if they stop practicing. You can show your doctor your gratitude with a small thank you note or email. Even a small note of encouragement can brighten your doctor’s day.
Spotlight your Doctor
If your doctor has a specialization or niche that is uncommon, consider spotlighting them on social media. If a practice sees a decrease in patients, exposure to the surrounding community can make a difference in attracting new patients. Additionally, even your primary care doctor may appreciate a positive review on their website or Facebook page. Maintaining a positive reputation can help doctors continue to feel passionate and excited about their line of work.
