Engaging Medical Students in Community

The Christian Medical Association offers vibrant student ministry on our Upstate medical campuses. It provides settings for friendship and dialogue about the integration of faith and vocation.

The CMDA student group hosts weekly Lunch & Learn speakers and supports volunteer/service opportunities. Off-campus Bible studies, home-cooked meals, social events, mentors, international mission trips, medical conferences, and rotations also are available to our students.


Our focus

What is CMDA Upstate's vision? To Change Hearts in Healthcare in Upstate, SC!


We believe Christian healthcare providers are uniquely positioned to extend care, compassion, and hope in Jesus Christ to others. So, we disciple students and encourage doctors, dentists, and other like-minded providers by nurturing community, spiritual and vocational growth, and supporting family life. Our local ministry depends solely on supporters like you.
