***PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO MEDICAL SCHOOL CLASS LISTSERVS AND TO ANY MEDICAL STUDENTS OR MEDICAL SCHOOL FACULTY/STAFF YOU KNOW***
The National Medical Student Voter Registration Campaign (NMSVRC) is a new effort by Citizen Physicians to get every eligible medical student in the country registered to vote so that we are ready to exercise our right to vote on November 8, 2016.
Any medical student that organizes a voter registration drive at their school (especially focusing on registering first-year students at the start of next academic year) will receive a Citizen Physicians lapel pin for their white coat. This pin indicates that you are a healthcare provider who understands the need to be civically conscious and engaged in order provide the best care for our patient populations.
Citizen Physicians is a start-up organization with a non-partisan, non-issue-based mission to train future healthcare providers in effective civic engagement.
If you are interested in participating, please fill out this form to receive more information on how to easily set up a voter registration activity at your school and how to receive your Citizen Physicians white-coat pin.
If you have any questions about this campaign, please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com. To learn more about Citizen Physicians, visit us at www.citizenphysicians.org, like us on Facebook and follow us @CtznPhysicians.

We would love for any student to post a selfie in line at your polling place, mailing in your absentee ballot, or wearing your “I voted” sticker to our Facebook page with a sentence about how you made time to cast your vote even as a busy medical student to encourage others to do the same.
