Why Christian Healthcare Professionals Need Encouragement, Education and Equipping

Dimming of the Light


Fewer than one in 10 Americans talk about God, faith, religion or spirituality even once a week (8 percent)—and only an additional 15 percent do so once a month. In fact, the average Christian adult says they only have about one spiritual conversation a year. [Barna Group, 2018]

More Diversity Needed


Only 4 percent of physicians are Black even though Blacks comprise 13 percent of the population. Less than 7 percent of recent medical school graduates are Black. [The National Bureau of Economic Research, 2018]

Physician Burnout & Stress Epidemic


42 percent of all physicians reported high levels of burnout, with 15 percent experiencing some level of colloquial or clinical depression. 5 percent of those surveyed admitted the stress caused them to make errors that cause harm to their patients. [Medscape, 2020]

Increased Fear of Malpractice Lawsuits


84.7 percent of physicians have over-prescribed, over-treated or un-necessarily ordered unneeded tests as a result of their increased fears of malpractice accusations. [Johns Hopkins, 2017]

You can help Christian healthcare students & professionals practice with ethical standards and share their faith as a part of patient treatment.

"So thrilled to see such a forum connecting Christian health professionals." – Irene S.

"This is an organization which, since my beginning Medical School in 1978, has helped remind me of my reason for being in medicine and my reason for living: to know Christ and to make Him known" – Bruce G.
