The Christian Medical and Dental Associations (CMDA) was founded by medical students as a vehicle for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer with other Christian physicians and medical students. Today, with over 14,000 members in all healthcare fields, CMDA sponsors local chapters at two-thirds of the nation's medical and dental school campuses. CMDA provides outreach, discipleship, and missions programs and assists students and healthcare practitioners in integrating Christian principles with their professional practice.
