The National Doctors’ Day is celebrated worldwide to acknowledge the contributions of doctors or physicians to individual lives. This day varies among different countries as it depends on the commemoration used to name the Doctor’s Day. 

As in India, the day is celebrated to honor the great physician, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy who was also the Chief Minister of West Bengal.

History of National Doctor’s Day

The tradition of celebrating National Doctor’s day was first started in the US on 30th March. The story behind it is fascinating and worth knowing. It arouses out from the invention of General Anesthesia in the 1840s. In 1841, Dr. Long discovered that under the influence of ‘Ether’ people are oblivious to pain. 

This enlightened him to a theory that ether can be effectively used in anesthesia. Therefore, on 30th March 1842, Dr. Long was successfully able to remove a cyst (tumor) from the neck of a patient called James Venable after giving him anesthesia. The first successful use of anesthesia was marked on this day.

Ninety-one years later, Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond sparked the idea to set a day to honor doctors and physicians and their tribute to society. The observance of the day speeded soon and in 1958, the US House of Representatives and the United States Senate passed a resolution passed by 101st United States Congress to recognize Doctor’s day.

 Later, on 30th October 1990, George H.W.Bush, the president ruling during the time, signed the resolution making 30th March as a designated Doctor’s day.

The Doctor’s day in India was recognized in the year 1991 by the Government of India to be celebrated on July 1st every year marking the birthday and death anniversary of Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy.

 He was the most renowned physician of India who had contributed greatly to the Indian Medical System. He played an important crucial role in establishing the Infectious Disease Hospital, Indian Institute of Mental Health, and Kolkata’s (West Bengal) very first postgraduate Medical college. To pay an honor and tribute to his incredible participation in the medical field, this day is celebrated.

Legendary physician Dr. Bidhan was born in the year 1882 on July 1st and passed away on the same date in the year 1962. His 80 years of admired service was worth honoring him with Bharat Ratna bestowed in the year 1961 on 4th February. 

After completing his higher studies from London, he returned to India in 1911 to pursue a career as a physician. He was very close to Mahatma Gandhi and also joined him during the Civil Disobedience Movement. After a few years, he was nominated for the position of Chief Minister of West Bengal due to his high expertise and contribution to the world.

 He accepted the position but never allowed it to come between his medical profession and continued to serve the poor with his medical proficiency.
