About CMDA

Tying our religious faiths with the practice of medicine enhances the personal meaningfulness of our future profession. The UMMS chapter of the Christian Medical and Dental Association (CMDA) is an organization that explores the Christian faith and what it means to be a Christian doctor in contemporary society. We strive to become more educated and aware of the spiritual needs of all patients.

In partnership with CMDA Boston, we hold events to discuss current ethical dilemmas, the role of faith and spirituality in medicine, and provide a community for those interested in exploring these issues. Weekly Bible Study, bimonthly fellowship outings, community service, guest speakers, the Winter Retreat, and more will be a part of this year’s CMDA activities. Our future plans include the August BBQ, July planning meetings/outings with CMDA Boston, and encouraging one another in faith. If you are interested in becoming involved or just learning more about us, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our student leaders!
