Christian Medical and Dental Associations

Founded in 1931, Christian Medical & Dental Associations exists to motivate, train and equip Christian doctors to glorify God. With over 16,000 members, its mission is to “change hearts in healthcare.”

Today it has over 40 outreaches that teach doctors how to address their patients’ spiritual needs, grow stronger in their Christian walk and serve the poor in this country and abroad. One of the core ministries of CMDA is working with students in over 240 medical and dental school campuses across the country in an effort to create the kind of doctors we all want and hope for – physicians and dentists who are competent, compassionate and focus on the patient more than the disease. CMDA also equips healthcare professionals and their patients with books, conferences and other educational resources, as well as speaks out on ethical and healthcare policy issues to the government, media and the church.

Through its many endeavors, CMDA is fulfilling its vision: “transformed doctors, transforming the world.” For more information go to
