The Family Doctor of the Day Program is a non-lobbying program in which KAFP members provide medical services at the Statehouse during the Legislative session. Volunteers spend the day at the Capitol Building in Topeka beginning at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 3:30 p.m.
The doctor's office is designed to serve as an aid station and is not intended to be a fully equipped clinic. It is equipped with a blood pressure cuff, otoscope, ophthalmoscope, some pharmaceuticals, disposable supplies and oxygen. Physicians should bring their own stethoscope and prescription pad.
CANCELLATION POLICY: The KAFP FDOD Program is an extremely important program. If you need to cancel the date you are scheduled to serve please notify the KAFP office ASAP so that we may find someone to fill your date.
If you have questions about the program, please call 316-721-9005.
Legislative Administrative Services has assigned a parking space for our DOD volunteers. It is located in the Statehouse underground parking garage. We are assigned space #A-166. The entrance to the garage is on 8th street near Harrison. You will park in the designated area and report to the Legislative Services office and inform them of your vehicle information and tag number.
