The presence of the doctor is the beginning of the cure. A special day is hence observed every year on July 1 as National Doctor’s Day. The objective is to acknowledge the contributions of doctors’ human service to mankind.
The First Doctor’s Day was celebrated in India in the year 1991. July 1 happens to be the birth and death anniversary of the most famous physician of India – Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy. It is hence a tribute to his contributions to the health domain in the country.
National Doctors day is being celebrated for years by the government and non-government healthcare organizations in order to get familiar with the doctors contributions. The day is commemorated by the staff of the healthcare organizations by organising variety of events and activities. Rotational medical services by the doctors are also promoted and encouraged in the community for better and healthy social development.
