NATIONAL PHYSICIANS WEEK 2020
PWT is thrilled to announce that we will celebrate our 5th annual National Physicians Week beginning on March 25-31, 2020. As physicians, we dedicate our lives to taking care of others. Our #Best2Together campaign is a call to action for all physicians and medical students to gather in unity to uplift and celebrate each other as brothers and sisters in medicine. When we work together, we stand to have a greater impact on the livelihood of medicine.
Physicians Working Together will tackle many of the pressing concerns that are affecting healthcare providers. We are here to eliminate the isolating issues that we face as physicians. Our mutual support for each member will strengthen our ability to provide quality patient care. We look forward to having physicians from all over the world join us as we prepare for our 2020 National Physician’s Week Campaign kick-off.
We'd like to thank Dr. Maiysha Clairborne for her partnership during NPW in Atlanta, Georgia. PWT and Stress-Free Mom Md invited fellow physicians to step from beyond the white coat to take a moment to fellowship, network, share ideas, and celebrate their milestones. We connected with our old friends and we made a few new ones too!
National Physicians Week was not always a week. Rather, this celebration merely lasted a day. Here and gone within 24 hours. But physicians are on the clock longer than that. And, during that time, it’s not your typical romanticized Grey’s Anatomy love and happiness with action in between. This action is constant. This action is in the emergency room, the private room of a private practice or free clinic, even in the office. It’s long nights and long days that seem everlasting – sacrificing personal time to help those in need every part of the day.
And so, National Physicians Week was created to extend the time to acknowledge and appreciate those in the line of duty for just a little longer. 2018 marks the third year of the extended celebration.
