Theme:

 

The theme for National Doctors' Day 2024, as unveiled on the National Doctors' website, is "Wings & Stethoscopes: Healers of Hope." Explaining the theme, the website stated, "This year’s theme, “Wings & Stethoscopes: Healers of Hope," embodies the selfless and tireless efforts of doctors in uplifting America’s families through two powerful symbols. The first symbolizes the omnipresent stethoscope draped around doctors' shoulders, poised for action. The second, the caduceus, intertwines two serpents around a winged staff, paying homage to Asclepius, the Greek god of healing and medicine."

 

History & significance:

 

The history of National Doctors' Day dates back to the recognition of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery by Dr. Crawford W. Long in 1842. The inaugural National Doctors' Day was observed in Winder, Georgia, in 1933, at the site of Dr. Long's medical clinic. In 1991, President George H. W. Bush issued a proclamation officially designating March 30th as National Doctors' Day in the United States.

 

On National Doctor's Day 2024, hospitals and medical institutions often organize events to honor and recognize their physicians. These celebrations may include award ceremonies, luncheons, banquets, and other gatherings where doctors receive public acknowledgment for their dedication and service.

 

Patients, colleagues, and organizations express their appreciation to doctors through various gestures, such as cards, notes, flowers, or small gifts. These tokens of gratitude serve as meaningful expressions of thanks for the doctors' unwavering commitment to patient care and their tireless efforts in the medical field.
