2019 Christian Surgeons Meeting

February 15, 2019 – February 17, 2019

Indianapolis, Indiana

Engaging Our Community by Being an Everyday Missionary

The Christian Surgeons Fellowship is a section of the Christian Medical and Dental Association, and we meet each year to offer renewal and encouragement to Christian surgeons and their spouses.  For more than twenty years, surgeons have found this meeting to be a unique place of refreshment and fellowship with colleagues who share faith in Christ.  The weekend is open to all surgeons and residents in academic or community practice, and spouses are very much encouraged to attend if possible.  We look forward to this time of growing together in our understanding of how to live out the gospel in the practice of surgery.
