National Doctor's Day: Decorating docs since 1990 and beyond

  • Nation's 700,000 docs to be decorated with carnations, praise

    According to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are approximately 700,000 physicians and surgeons currently practicing in the country — men and women dedicated to healing a near 314 million colleagues and citizens over the course of 365 days each year. It makes sense then, that those physicians receive their red carnations (the official holiday flower) and incoming appreciations on their designated day, March 30, National Doctor's Day, and beyond. While every day should conceivably be National Doctor's Day, only one has been granted the esteemed title. Click through and learn why this Saturday belongs to you.
