Citizen Physicians is a start-up non-profit with a non-partisan, non-issue-based mission to train future healthcare providers in effective civic engagement.
Our goals are to:
Be the Rock the Vote of the medical community, increasing voter registration, engagement with locally elected officials, and voter turnout,
Build the movement for physician involvement in policies that impact how we practice, and
Teach future healthcare providers how to engage effectively as individual citizens in the political arena.
We are looking for passionate, dedicated student leaders excited by our mission of training medical students to engage more effectively in political processes, students who are excited by joining the initial stages of a start-up non-profit, and communicative students who are excited to work collaboratively with students at other medical schools to share ideas and build programs together.
If this sounds like an initiative you would like to bring to your campus, please check out the application page here. Please also distribute this call for applications to any healthcare students you know who might forward this initiative on to their class listservs.
If you have any questions about Citizen Physicians or the application process, please don't hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
