Residents / Fellows

Residents / Fellows

Want to be sure to stay connected to the ministry of CMDA when you're out of school? We know that work load and stress increase dramatically during residency and fellowship. At the same time, the needs of your family and friends remain constant. That's a formula for disaster unless you are committed to the priorities given you by God: God first, family second, career third. We are here to help you keep those priorities and grow in your faith during your training years.

That's why we offer special resident and fellow membership options- $100 annual fee and $150 one-time resident or fellow package (see Membership Dues page).

With this one-time package, you'll still continue to receive the same great benefits like Today's Christian DoctorCMDA Matters, the National Resident Council and webinars, plus you'll also receive a 10% discount on all purchases from CMDA's Bookstore (excludes logo wear and may not be combined with any other offers) and a 15% discount on registration for CMDA's National Convention).

If you're already a resident or fellow member of CMDA and would like to update your membership, please contact CMDA's Member Services or call 888-230-2637. If you are new to CMDA and would like to take advantage of this new package opportunity, please join us by visiting

Your card will NOT be charged until the gift recipient affirms our statement of faith and submits a membership application.

Group memberships are designed with practices in mind as individual practices with five or more members are eligible. There are great benefits to having a group membership, and you can also offer CMDA membership as a practice benefit to your associates.

Any practice with five or more qualifying staff members who wish to join CMDA or are current members qualifies for this discount. A qualifying staff member is defined as a degreed healthcare professional, associate health, resident or graduate practicing doctor.

  • Everyone has the same renewal date.
  • Multiple memberships are paid with one single invoice that is sent to a designated contact person, saving both your practice and your associates the trouble of dealing with individual invoices.
  • And best of all…you will receive a 25% discount off each membership rate!
