Happy Doctors Day!

The Department of Medicine would like to wish all physicians and future physicians a very Happy Doctors’ Day!

Each year, March 30th is designated as National Doctors’ Day.  The holiday, while not officially signed into law until the early 1990s, originated in the 1930s by a physician’s wife in North Georgia.

The Department of Medicine at Case Western Reserve Univeristy and University Hospitals Case Medical Center are proud to recognize Doctors Day. As physicians, you sacrifice so much of your life for all the additional years of school and training, plus being on call and taking time away from your families to care for those in need.  Many people don’t realize the level of pressure and stress that physicians deal with, how much debt many of you take on to become a doctor (the average is about $140,000, but many doctors have up to $250,000 in school debt), and the high cost of practicing medicine today.

Therefore, we would like to thank you for all your hard work, sacrifices, and care that you provide to so many people each and every day!  We hope you have a very enjoyable Doctors’ Day! You have more than earned it!
