CMF is here to connect you with other Christian doctors; support you when you are facing challenges in the workplace; provide resources and training to help you learn and grow; and enable you to have opportunities to lead and serve.
Across the UK, local groups of doctors meet regularly for teaching, encouragement, and support. Our Regional Staffworkers and Links (Local, Workplace, Church, Deanery and Foundation School) help to connect you, ensuring you feel part of the wider fellowship, wherever you are and whatever level of experience you're at.
National and regional weekend and day conferences run throughout the year, which are great for networking, training, and making new friends. Members are also able to connect online through our website and through our various social media channels.
Working at the sharp end of society – the frontline of health and healing – brings with it stresses and challenges. It's all too easy to feel lonely and isolated. CMF recognises this and through the example of Christ the great physician offers a number of mentoring, care and advice schemes for the benefit of all health professionals. We also support you in upholding Christian values in health and medicine, with a dedicated Public Policy team making submissions on new legislation and representing you in the media.
Keynote addresses at our main conferences are recorded for podcasting and downloading. Our regular print publications feature high quality research and informed comment. We also publish books on various subjects tackling ethical, practical and moral questions that every Christian doctor is likely to face.
CMF believes strongly in helping to build up your skills and experience. Whether you're getting ready for mission abroad, learning about whole person care, sharing your faith in the workplace, or wanting to add substance to your discussions on ethics and apologetics, we have training programmes for you.
Our conferences offer seminars, keynote addresses and a chance to network with experts in their fields – allowing you to grow as a doctor, in knowledge and ambition.
