Why Give to CMDA Atlanta

CMDA Atlanta is focused on growing the Christian community among healthcare providers. A large part of this is the development of the Christian student community at seven different campuses. We also lead 3 medical mission trips each year to central America and the Caribbean. We offer scholarships to as many students as we can to give them a taste of serving God's people abroad. We also provide a free medical clinic to serve refugees three Saturdays each month in Clarkston, GA, the most diverse square mile in America. We provide exams, labs and prescriptions at no cost to the refugees. This is a great opportunity for students to work side by side with doctors serving the least, the last and the lost.

Your financial support will help grow our student ministries and hopefully their involvement as healthcare professionals. The harvest is plentiful and the laborers are few. We strive to develop more laborers for Christ.

Additional Info


We have Bible studies on campuses and bring speakers in to discuss the intersection of their faith and the medical career. We host dinners for students at doctors homes and cross-campus social gatherings quarterly.
