The Sydenham 2 International Leadership Course (SYD2) aims to equip and enthuse delegates for leadership among medics in their own countries. The programme will be rich in Bible teaching, seminars, and fellowship; focusing on principles of Godly leadership, and encouraging delegates to live faithfully as Christians in medicine. The conference is intended for young doctors who are actively involved in Christian ministry.
The 2019 programme has not been finalized but will follow a similar format to the 2018 conference:
SYD2 also includes attendance at CMF's Junior Doctors Conference , 25-27 October, Hothorpe Hall, Leicestershire, UK.
Please note, the conference will be conducted in English, and there will not be any formal translation. Therefore all delegates must have sufficient conversational English to attend talks and enter into discussions in English without a translator.
This is what some delegates had to say about 2018 SYD2:
"Being a good doctor is not just accumulating knowledge and experience, but it is about having a humble and compassionate character. SYD2 helped me to go one step further in my walk with God and to see the implications of my belief on my work as a doctor."
I, unreserved recommend SYD2 for every Christian Doctor who wants to ground their mind with both scriptural and medical knowledge to live out their faith in every area of their lives. SYD2 settled my doubts on some of the ethical issues I was struggling with, it also catalysed my passion for the gospel and brought me in contact with like-minded brethren all over the World. So come along and be part of this great experience and stand out boldly for the Lord.
SYD2 is a great opportunity to grow in your faith through very good teaching and fellowship with other Christians from all over the world. Don't miss it!
The cost of the week is £395. This includes attendance at the Sydenham International Leadership Course in London (20-25 October), and the National Junior Doctors Conference in Leicestershire (25-27 October), and all accommodation, food and transport after arrival.
Delegates are responsible for organising and funding their Visas and return travel to and from the UK.

Only if there are spare places or if people drop out after this date, would we be able to consider new applications.

You will receive an email confirming receipt of your application once we receive it. If you do not receive confirmation, do let us know, in case your application form was trapped by our spam filter! After the deadline, all applications and references will be reviewed individually. You will then be contacted by email within two weeks of the deadline to confirm whether you have been offered a place.

1. One should be a church leader, e.g. your Pastor
2. The other should be from a leader in your national Christian medical movement (or ICMDA Area Representative/Regional Representative)
Your referee should not be a family member or friend. If this is unavoidable please clarify on your application form the exact relationship of the person to you and why they were chosen as referee (for example your father is the sole leader of your church).
