Members with a Kansas medical license, including residents, are eligible to serve as the Family Doctor of the Day at the Statehouse during the legislative session.

FDOD volunteers report to the Statehouse in Topeka at 9:00 a.m. and stay until 3:00 p.m. taking care of legislators, staff and sometimes even visitors who need medical attention.

FDOD is a volunteer program organized by the Kansas Academy of Family Physicians, in which KAFP provides for a family physician to be present at the Statehouse each day during the legislative session. KAFP relies on its trusted membership to volunteer to serve as FDOD.

The FDOD program is an opportunity to network in Topeka, learn about the legislative process, attend part of a session or committee meeting and provide a much-appreciated service to legislators on behalf of KAFP. The legislators are grateful for the program and it showcases the great work of family medicine in patient care!
