Junior Doctors

Sarah Germain writes:

Over 80 junior doctors attended CMF’s national junior doctors’ conference at Hothorpe Hall in Leicestershire on 8–10 October. The theme was ‘To live is Christ’ and Chris Lambert gave the main Bible readings on Paul’s letter to the Philippians and seminars tailored to juniors issues covered such subjects as working abroad, managing money, medicine and the media, ethics, singleness and maintaining Christian vitality.

We discovered in July, somewhat to our surprise, that our juniors scholarship fund had over £4,000 in it from giving at past conferences – so we have spent it as follows: £2,000 to sponsor former USSR doctors to the ICMDA conference in Germany, and £2,000 to help nonsalaried juniors in the UK (eg those doing PLAB) and Eastern European colleagues to come to national juniors’ conference.

Plans are afoot for a new book for juniors – with a junior friendly format dealing with a whole host of issues in easily digestible format. More later.

Currently we are dreaming up plans for next year with a day conference in the spring. To spread the load each member of the junior doctors committee has been allocated a special portfolio to help advance our ministry amongst juniors in the areas of evangelism, discipleship/fellowship, mission and ethics/media.

There is a big need for junior doctors to speak out on issues in the media and eight junior women doctors and students are to have their own special media training day in London on 25 October. It is almost certain that this will not be the last.
