The CMF National Conference is a great opportunity to meet other Christian doctors, both working and retired - medical student, nurse or junior – from a wide range of specialties. Delegates come from across the UK and Ireland – even overseas, for a weekend of great teaching, seminars and worship. There’s also excellent food and times to relax in comfortable surroundings at our new venue, Yarnfield Park in Staffordshire.
Our topic this year is 'Made in the image of God', where we’ll be able to dig deep into God’s word and discover our true identity and value as deeply loved children of the King, living and serving Christ in medicine.

He initially trained as a general surgeon (and as a paediatric surgeon) at the Christian Medical College, Vellore and later served as the Director of Emmanuel Hospital Association.

This will run concurrently with other seminars but is only available for student leaders.
This year's Rendle Short Lecture will be delivered by Dr Vinod Shah, who will be speaking on the topic of 'The grand narrative of our vision and its implications'.
Objective: Though superficially similar, even the best secular vision and their approach to the work of healing falls far short of what we in the ICMDA family are envisioning.
Six radical differences between the secular vision and the Christian vision will be recounted, and the global vision of ICMDA painted.
